Elvira Van Vredenburgh

To kick off our 2017 Christmas season, we’re introducing our selection of designers and makers and finding out a little about what they do and what inspires them.

Elvira Van Vredenburgh originally trained as a printed textile designer and graduated from the Royal College of Art in the 1990’s. She immediately began selling fashion and furnishing designs to top designers worldwide.

In 2016 she started designing her own greetings cards and gift wrap and her collection now includes notecards, notebooks, high quality giclee prints and printed silk scarves. She has a textile designer’s eye for pattern and shape and her style is bold and bright using bird and abstract themes. All products in her collection are designed by Elvira and printed in the UK.

We asked Elvira to choose her favourite piece from her collection and where she finds her inspiration:
‘My favourite product is my printed silk scarves, I love the way a design is bought to life on fabric. These make great gift items for Christmas and are a top seller at this time of year.  I love visiting Tate Modern and am always very inspired when I go.’
Elvira will be at Homeworks on Sunday 3 December.
