We would like to introduce the Earthed Irish linen Fabric Collection from William Clark.
Earthed is a modern soft furnishing brand presenting a bold new collection of fabrics exploring the themes of nature, industry and colour.
Upperlands is the debut range from this collection, celebrating the relationship between industry and nature in the Upperland environment that surrounds the William Clark fabric Mill.
With a 300 year tradition of producing fabric, William Clark is one of the longest running textile businesses in the world.
Heralding from Ireland, their rustic fabric mill produces a full range of natural and synthetic fibres including cotton and linen fabric to ship worldwide.
Despite their traditional fine fabric roots and growing International demand,
William Clark are always looking to innovate and push the boundaries of their fabric production and design.
Investing in cutting edge print technologies, including a brand new state of the art digital printer, allows them to create such elegant designs.
William Clark also pride themselves on quality control,
ensuring all fabric that leaves their mill is consistently perfect.
Which as I'm sure you can agree, is always a welcome fact.
Created by 'Clark Pioneers', the Earthed fabric collection is a brand new range of Irish Linen from William Clark.
Earthed linen is a fusion of traditional and modern fabric design.
While the influences of the Earthed collection are firmly rooted in the rich tapestry of the land,
the designs are worked out through future technology.
Reflecting the adventurous nature of William Clark,
their designers aim to use the Earthed collection to challenge our perspective of nature.
In particular, questioning how we interact with our environments and the emotions brought out by these colours.
All of the fabrics in this collection are 100% Irish linen.
The debut range from the Earthed collection is Upperlands.
Upperlands is named after William Clark's rural home In Ireland.
However Upperlands is not just another fabric range.
The Upperlands collection, while on the surface may seem like an adventure of colour and fabrics,
also tells a story of the Upperlands themselves and celebrates the rich history of William Clark.
Through the medium of the fabric patterns they explore industrial expansion, advancements in technology and their ever shifting relationship with the natural environment of the Upperlands.
There are five evocative colourful fabric styles that make up the Upperlands range.
Each of which offer a different aspect to the Upperlands tale:
Drawing on inspiration from the Upperlands' plantlife and reflections in the river made from skylight, Riverbed uses earthly tones to create a calm serene design.
These designs look to inspire those seeking to become immersed in nature.
Firmly based in industrial monochromatic colours, this design has subtle twists hidden in the fabric that creates a rustic ambiance.
The fabric's calming tones are suitable for anyone looking to create mellow spaces in their home.
3. Self Heal
Utilising warm purples, deep reds, cool blues and solid greys, this combination of rich colours promotes positivity including passion and well being.
The colours are drawn from the stages of the self-healing, intending to establish a positive and healing environment.
4. Sperrin Jewell
Uniquely named by the Sperrin Mountains surrounding the Upperlands, these fabrics are inspired by the precious minerals found in these mountains.
Relishing the energetic colours of gold and red, they offer a mantra of security and strength.
Suitably named after the Celtic Sky and Mountain God, these colours take inspiration from the setting Summer Sun against the Upperlands.
Latobius simply looks to provide inspiration for those who seek it out.
