Warner Textile Archive Fabric Collection with Claremont Furnishing Fabrics

Warner Textile Archive Trading Limited, the Archive’s commercial trading company, is proud to continue its flourishing relationship with Claremont as our fabric ranges continue to grow.

Working closely in collaboration with the director of Claremont, Adam Sykes, the Archive has carefully selected deigns that reflect the diversity and quality of the Collection to form the exclusive range. This has provided the Archive with the opportunity to return to its roots in high end textile production, whilst responding to the requirements of Claremont’s prestigious interior design clients.

To ensure the finest quality of production, all designs are printed by the established French mill, Tissus d’Avesnieres, a holder of the French Enterprise du Patrimoine Vivant. The ranges demand a variety of techniques, each of which requires the specific traditional dyeing, printing and glazing skills that are maintained by this historic company.

Proceeds from sales contribute to the continued conservation of this historic collection.

Details of the collections can be found below.
