Wallace Sewell is a woven textile design studio founded in 1992 by textile designers Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell. Inspired by the colours and textures of the countryside and cityscapes, and influenced by the aesthetic and ideology of the Bauhaus period, Wallace Sewell weave innovative fabrics using traditional techniques. Combining rich colour palettes with colourful geometric forms, their bold patterns adorn everything from scarves, throws and cushions to Transport for London moquettes. Today Wallace Sewell can be found in over 200 stockists worldwide, from Tate to MOMA. This display highlights the 25th anniversary of a textile success story, founded by graduates of the Royal College of Art whose global success is rooted in British design education and UK manufacturing.
