Wallace Sewell is a world famous woven textile design studio, established by Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell, after graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1990.
London Transport Museum commissioned Wallace Sewell (also the designers of most of Transport for London’s train and tram seating moquette fabrics) to design and produce a modern lamb’s wool fabric featuring the 11 colours of London’s Underground lines crossed by the striking orange house colour of London Overground as a tribute to the end of the 150th anniversary of London Underground and to reference a bright, integrated and design led future for the world’s oldest Underground network The resulting design is both vibrant and tasteful.
The studio’s motivation is to design innovative woven fabrics exploiting industrial techniques, the collaboration thriving on a vibrant exchange of ideas from the dual perspectives of creating textiles for fashion and furnishings.
Work is distinguished by a positive and confident use of colour and an intelligent use of yarn properties and standard weave structures, producing exclusive fabrics of discerning appeal.
The studio works closely with a mill in Lancashire which weaves the larger pieces and batch production. The studio also works closely with a finishers in Huddersfield who draw their water from their own borehole in pursuit of the softest and purest water which perfect for textile finishing
