We were surprised and excited recently to spot our beautiful design Amadour on a sofa in new Netflix film The Dig, set in the late 30s. This is an old archival colourway from many years ago that is no longer available, but those bamboo stems and cherry blossoms are unmistakably Amadour! We just love that this vintage fabric was chosen to help create that chintzy English country house look in a period setting.
Amadour is available in linen mix, cotton satin and velvet in a variety of rich colourways.
We were featured in the March 2021 issue of HomeStyle magazine in a ‘Chintz Charming’ story rounding up some of the best chintz fabrics for spring, including our pretty floral CELESTE design which featured in the Chintz and Wedgwood colourways. Thank you for including us!
Celeste is a large-scale bouquet design taken from a magnificent French 19th-century archival document. It’s printed on crisp 100% cotton and available in four stunning colourways.
We’re thrilled that the January/February issue of top American interiors magazine Veranda included EXOTIC FRUITS in the Pomegranate colourway in a ‘Chintz Immortal’ feature, focussing on the history and revival of chintz. You can find us on page 35 of the print magazine as well as online here.
EXOTIC FRUITS is a trailing botanical design taken from an 18th-century chinoiserie archive fragment – available in three colourways, all on 100% linen.
Thank you to Period Living Magazine and Style Editor Pippa Janey for mentioning Exotic Fruits in the ‘New Year New Prints’ story in January’s issue!
We’re so thrilled to be featured in the January 2021 issue of The English Home magazine, with a full page on our beautiful toile linen Albertina. You can find us on page 14.

We are so thrilled that the November issue of Homes & Antiques includes a three-page feature on The Design Archives.
The article delves into the fascinating history of our director Sharon Crowson’s successful family business, Crowson Fabrics Ltd, which was founded by her father in the 1970s and at its peak was selling 10 million yards of fabric a year.
As the article explains, the company’s vast and varied collection of around 5,000 historic designs are now united under the Crowson Archive name, and are all available to license.
Here at The Design Archives we have drawn on this fantastic resource for a large majority of our fabrics, from Tree of Life, Amadour and Tiffany, to Celeste, Grosvenor and the designs in our fabulous new collection Shala.
Thank you so much to Homes & Antiques for featuring us, and to photographer Andreas von Einsiedel and interiors journalist Amanda Harling. You can find us on page 49 of the magazine!
To find out more about licensing designs from the archive and how to access it, please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are delighted that our Celeste fabric made an appearance in The Sunday Times Style magazine on 13 September in a three-page feature on designer Matilda Goad’s beautiful London home. It’s wonderful to see the rich Boysenberry colourway on a stunning double-ended upholstered chaise in Matilda’s living room.
Matilda has been working closely with House & Garden over the last two years documenting her home renovation, with a series of videos that will be launched next month. We will be keeping our eyes peeled for further glimpses of the fabulous chaise!
We are very excited to see our fabric Albertina in the Terracotta colourway featured in an autumn round-up of the new collections in the October issue of The World of Interiors. You can find us on page 124, amongst excellent company.
