Selina Rose

I fell in love this morning with award-winning textile designer Selina Rose after seeing her products over at Bodie & Fou (10% off everything on their site until Dec. 20th: enter code XMAS09 at checkout). Selina is a  London-based designer who uses cutting-edge technology to create intricate and beautiful felted runners and throws, but also brilliant wallpaper, panels, pillows and rugs. Here’s but a glimpse… so tactile and cozy!

    Deb – The price may reflect the care she puts into sourcing eco-friendly materials and hiring locally to manufacture her goods vs. outsourcing them to China. I’m sure that it takes considerable time and resources to make a single throw and also to compensate the person fairly who is making it, as well as taxes involved, studio costs, etc. so when you consider all of that I bet that price is fair. I personally know what you mean, I cannot afford to spend that myself, but I think we’re all quite spoiled by all of the Made In China 19.99 items that we find in big box stores that when we do find exclusive wares that we consider expensive it’s easy to assume that the designer is just marking it up to take advantage of the consumer. I really don’t know, in this case, what her profit margin is and it’s not my business but usually this is what happens in this industry — designers make really great things, people complain over high pricing, and then you find “just like it” designs in a big box store in 6 months for a fraction of the price. It’s hard I think for these designers to compete these days and still remain profitable and fair. What do you think Deb? It’s hard to imagine paying that for a throw though, again, I agree!!!

    Beautiful and Clever! I would love to use these products in so many areas of my home. Thank you for introducing me to them.
    I do agree that the price likely reflects the quality and keeping in the designer’s standards. I lived in the UK for several years and manufacturing there is certainly more expensive than outsourcing overseas. I personally hope these designs are not copied and “cheapened”.

    The monetary value of an item is not the sum of the cost and profit. It’s how much people will pay for it. A handbag can be priced 50 bucks at store, 10 bucks used, and tenfold in 15 years when it’s then considered vintage. It has nothing to do with cost. Even if the bed-throw cost of production was £349.99, you can’t automagically attach that to it’s price. When you look at other products in same range of quality, design, manufactured locally, and eco-friendly materials, it’s clear that the throw can’t be valued at £349.99. Well… maybe it can, if someone actually pays that amount for it :).

    Actually, I’m not sure about the pricing anymore. I did a google search and found felt cut out textiles ranging from $20-$1800.
