Between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, at the southernmost point of Europe and nestling amidst bougainvillea and olive trees are the headquarters of James Malone Fabrics. One can sense the inspiration of the south that is so present in James’ collections and can understand why he has chosen this location to interact with the rest of the world.

James is involved in the entire development process, using yarns unique to his textiles and collaborating with master craftsmen to weave them for him. The final result, the interior decorative fabrics, use natural fibers such as linen, wool and bamboo woven in unconventional prints and structured jacquards with a hinted tribal accent. The collection is rounded off with sophisticated woven plains, voiles with a touch of fantasy and wallpapers inspired by his textile designs.

The James Malone fabric collection is eclectic. Notable amongst them is the Van Alen which presents an art deco styled pattern inspired by the Chysler building in New York, designed by the architect, William Van Alen; Troia is printed on a Malone distinctive linen and presents harmoniously moving jelly fish in a decorative water coloured pattern. Also available in wallpaper named Comporta; Formosa is woven with a Malone exclusive viscose chenille with an additional two new colours.  Formosa is a chunky weave with a striking design reminiscing the pine forests found along the Alentejo coast. Snow is a rather inventive fabric with a glossy matt look achieved by mixing viscose and synthetic chenilles that create an attractive semi plain with a quirky colour palette. Khafra is an exquisite mix of wool and linen woven with a viscose chenille make up this eye–catching irregular geometric, pyramid design. Hereo is based on an earlier textile design named Hera. Hereo is a novel version woven in linen with a subtle calendar sheen finish. A bold design toned down with the combination of soft muted shades.
