New Ranges

February 2013Melinki, Scions debut range, is an eclectic mix of prints, embroideries, jacquards and co-ordinating plains, drawn from mid-century archive documents and modern Scandinavian design. It has a cool, clean palette of fashionable hues: coastal calm, retro kitsch, bakelite brights and urban neutrals.
February 2013Affordable, contemporary, slightly retro feel, range of polyester/viscose weaves. Hard wearing and practical, drapes well. Nice subtle sheen
January 2013A co-ordinating checks and stripes collection, in a tactile, textured linen mix which work harmoniously with the prints and embroideries.
January 2013Ticking stripes are well loved for their versatile, easy to live with character. Five new essential cotton stripes are beautifully combined with two finely woven small-scale weaves.
October 2012Juniper cleverly combines the current trends for folk embroideries and cool updates of retro prints. These well-finished embroideries are inspired by textile, wallpaper and ceramic designs of the 1930s and 1950s. With a fresh airy feel to it, the selection encompasses Betula: a sinuous leaf ogee in contrasting tones, Formosa: a delicately-stitched curling fern design in a panel stripe and Orletta: a striking leaf and bud motif in a combination of good, workable colours. All designs are embroidered on to neutral or softly coloured linen and linen-mix fabrics.
October 2012A very popular brushed linen union with a unique peach-skin finish in a multitude of soft-washed contemporary shades, for a relaxed look thats very suave.
