Renaissance Textiles designs and manufactures fabrics reproduced faithfully from original historical fabrics and drawings of early English and European fabrics from the Byzantine era to the 19th Century. Many of these historical fabrics have not been woven for hundreds of years and often tend to be rediscovered with the help of the museum archives of Europe. The authenticity of these historic reproduction fabrics is testament to years of experience and extensive research.
In addition to the Renaissance Collection, we offer a bespoke textile design service. Whether you have a precise idea of the fabric design you want, or would like our creative assistance, the result will be individual and perfectly suited to your project.
Over the years, the company has worked for private clients and public institutions including The Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Stirling Castle, Chepstow Castle Cadw, The Duke of Argyll’s Lodgings.
The Renaissance Collection is a timeless range of historic textiles, inspired by the diverse archives of the national museums and the privately owned collections.
The fabrics are woven in Britain and France, using the natural fibres of flax, cotton, silk or wool. They include both the jacquard designs and traditional woollen cloths such as twills, satins, camlets and damasks. Where practical, the weave construction of these historic textiles replicates the originals.
