Designs from the Warner Textile Archive have been used on a wide variety of products, from fabric and wallpaper, to jewellery and ceramics, to stationery and silk ties. Each of these partnerships supports the ongoing conservation of the Archive Collection.
We are always keen to hear from prospective licensing partners.
In our first collaboration with GO Stationery, Warner & Sons’ knowledge and appreciation for pattern translate seamlessly into two ranges of notebooks and paper gifts, perfect for plans, notes and ideas.

Furnishings and Interiors
Sanderson’s Vintage 2 collection launched to critical acclaim at Paris Déco Off in early 2015, and is a celebration of marvellous pattern and print. Two designs from the range were sourced from the Warner Textile Archive – Flamingoes, (hand-painted gouache on paper, 1995) and Beechgrove (hand painted in ink on watercolour paper, 1968), and are now available as stylish rotary-printed wallpapers in a variety of colourways.
Established in 1994, Linwood is a family business based in Hampshire, providing classic designs with a modern twist to their interior design clients.
The design, Document 1114, from the Archive was licensed by Linwood who reproduced the pattern as their successful design, Hastings (image to the left – colourway Harbour Blue)
