Timorous Beasties

Digital Iguana

Bird Branch

In addition to wallpaper and window shades, Glasgow textile studio Timorous Beasties produces fabric. Like Domestic Element, they subvert traditional textile designs like toile by using them to depict modern themes. They just go one step grittier and hardcore than DE with their devils, prostitues and heroin addicts, and iguanas. It’s not all urban decay, though; some of their designs are just normally beautiful, unless I’m missing a joke!

Gull Wave

Fabrics include laces, jacquard weaves, digitally printed cotton, and hand screen-printed cotton, velvet, linen, and wool; prices per meter start at £62. They have showrooms in Glasgow and London, otherwise it looks like they only sell to the trade.
