Wallace Sewell

About

European design studio, Wallace Sewell, is well known for its stunning woven products and textile designs, as well as working on commissions and collaborations with clients worldwide. Established in the UK by Emma Sewell and Harriet Wallace-Jones, after graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1990, their diverse portfolio includes scarves for the Tate museums, as well as ‘moquette’ fabric designs for Transport for London’s iconic underground seating.

When exhibiting for the first time in 1992, their pieces created much excitement and interest, particularly from Barneys New York, who placed Wallace Sewell’s first order. This proved instrumental in laying the foundations of the Wallace Sewell brand. Barneys continue to buy today and are one of over 300 stockists in 20 countries, who Wallace Sewell now supplies.

The studio offers a diverse range of design services, from consultancy to tailored product development. Recent projects include collaborations with West Elm, where Wallace Sewell designed products and soft furnishings for their home range; as well as working with boutique hotels, such as The Standard, to develop and produce bespoke bedspreads.

This year, Wallace Sewell is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement, with the launch of a re-edition of the blanket designed by Gunta Stölzl, for the student accommodation in the Prellerhaus, Bauhaus Dessau. Such a prestigious project is an honour for the studio, as Wallace Sewell are strongly influenced by the Bauhaus ideology, uniting craft and manufacturing, whilst embracing traditional techniques.

Combining innovation with practical solutions, Wallace Sewell is known for its use of colour, structure and yarn in surprising geometric formats. Inspired by paintings, they create individual contemporary designs with strikingly bold, asymmetric blocks and stripes of varying scales, which bring together a plethora of elements within one piece.

Provenance

Established

1992

Manufactured

The initial design process begins on handlooms in the London and Dorset studios. Production then takes place in a family-run mill in Lancashire, fusing tradition with state of the art technology, allowing the flexibility to weave a variety of qualities, from small batches to larger quantities. Fabric is then washed and pressed at ‘finishers’ in Yorkshire, to give the cloth a luxurious handle. Since Wallace Sewell’s inception, Emma and Harriet are proud to have always worked in the UK, embracing the British Textile Industry for its wealth of expertise and production excellence.

Components

Wallace Sewell source their yarns from UK companies wherever possible, but some yarns have to be sourced from other countries, for example the Merino Lambswool comes from Australia/ New Zealand.
