e m b ro i d e r e d fa b r i c s by kit kemp for chelsea textiles

a hand embroidered fabric collection has been created by kit kemp, design director of firmdale hotels, in collaboration with chelsea textiles’ head designer, jenny simpson. influenced by a sense of the whimsical and the lyrical, as well as a love of animals, the collection features a series of characters and patterns that have a primitive, folkloric feel. the narratives unfold playfully on the fabric, from a star gazing dog and a sailor’s farewell to mythical creatures and a modern take on a suzani. the art of hand-embroidery is the essence of chelsea textiles and kit kemp brings the medium to light using wonderful colour palettes and charming, idiosyncratic patterns. chelsea textiles specialises in bespoke, hand-embroidered textiles and is one of very few companies safeguarding the skill and timehonoured tradition of producing exquisitely detailed handmade fabrics, using authentic, high quality materials.


i’ve always cherished embroidery, as an art form as well as a constant source of inspiration for the fabrics i use to decorate rooms. kit kemp
