Niki Fulton

About

Niki Fulton works from her studio in Edinburgh where she designs prints for her brand of luxury silk scarves and neck ties.

She worked in the interiors industry for over twenty years and latterly as a colour designer for an interior paint brand. She regularly wrote about colour harmony and was a guest speaker at Grand Designs Live. Then as part of a colour study she was reporting on she was invited to a Scottish textile mill on the isle of Bute. It was at this point she fell in love with textiles and began designing her own prints.

Blown over by the quality, integrity and craftsmanship she found within the British textile industry, Niki found a family run company to print her silks and a traditional tie maker to cut and finish the ties and scarves. This allowed Niki the freedom to get on with what she loves doing - designing the prints.

Niki has found that the British textile industry is extremely highly regarded for its quality by buyers both home and abroad and by manufacturing her whole range exclusively in Great Britain buyers know they can expect a high quality authentic product made with passion and built in heritage.

The 'Eclipse Tie' has been spotted being worn by a Fashion Historian presenting a BBC documentary and a high profile gentleman has said that the ‘Breton Signal’ Tie has persuaded him to start wearing ties again! A lawyer in Glasgow who wears a tie everyday said that it is important to him to wear a tie with a strong and interesting design as it is the only part of his working wardrobe where he can project his own personality. Another client said at a networking event the ‘ice was broken’ when someone admired his 'Fennel Tangle' tie and he was able to talk a little about its creation. It is amazing what conversations can develop from a tie!

Each product comes with a tag depicting the story behind the print and packed in a branded presentation box.

Her work was recently described by Craft Scotland,

"her designs have a feeling of rhythm and movement through careful placement and interaction of her chosen colour palette. She is inspired by her experiences of urban and rural landscape and also from arts and poetry"

Niki currently is currently stocked in the V&A Dundee.

Provenance

Established

2005

Manufactured

Niki Fulton creates her designs from her studio in Edinburgh. Her designs are then printed and manufactured by a long established specialist tie and scarf maker in England. All her work has hand finished detailing. The bespoke tie presentation boxes are crafted by a 4th generation family owned box company in England.

Components

Niki has used several fabrics to print on including linen union from Fife, linen from Kildare and European open weave wools. She also works with unprinted silk which is currently made in China but is happy to hear that the recent dramatic rise in the cost of silk production has meant that mulberry bushes are once again being planted in Italy where farmers are hoping to reestablish the silk industry again.
