Soane's collection of plain and patterned fabrics are woven and printed in British mills and workshops. Their experts employ traditional methods, such as block and screen printing, perfected over generations, to create fine quality fabrics with the timeless appeal and atmosphere of antique textiles. Each Soane fabric has been inspired by pieces in Lulu's own personal collection of antique, decorative textiles, art and jewels. Age-old patterns are studied and their compositions and colours sensitively reworked to create new designs. Soane's fabrics are fresh and contemporary yet retain a sense of their exotic heritage. The shared genealogy of the Soane fabrics makes for a versatile family of complementary designs and colourways. Occasionally a jewel-like fabric or flash of unusual colour adds contrast to an otherwise harmonious range.
