Cloth (Sydney)

Cloth is a small indie company based in Sydney that creates screen printed textiles by hand for 12 years. With a small staff of 5, owner and designer Julie Paterson prototypes and develops all the designs, each inspired by the natural setting near her beachside workshop.

An example of some of thier textiles. I love the one shown top left. Now look at the image below to see some of these in the home.


Working with hemp and linen, Cloth creates durable textiles that can be used for upholstery and soft furnishings, each very contemporary, yet soft and relaxed. In addition to textiles, Cloth offers pillows, lighting, table linens, and many other items, including Julie’s paintings, in the storefront that they share with Porch Furniture in Surrey Hills. If you visit Sydney, be sure to add Cloth to your shopping list. If you like something that you see on thier website, just write to them or complete this online form. I’m sure someone will help you out.

Contemporary Cloth would like to extend an offer to decor8 readers, valid today through Feb 24th, midnight EST. 10% off all fabric! Please make sure you mention decor8 upon checkout.

Enjoy the discount, here are some of my favorites below, all available at Contemporary Cloth (I especially love the raindrops pattern in the middle).


Note: Contemporary Cloth is a decor8 sponsor, but they’ve not paid me to promote them in this blog post. I’m writing about them for one simple reason: Savings, people! If a sponsor wants to offer readers a discount, I see no issue blogging about it from time to time.

Jan Constantine Embroidered Collection

With a background in fashion, interiors and styling, and a loyal following in the UK, there’s no question Jan Constantine has a unique style and good taste that appeal to many. Her collection of hand-embroidered soft furnishings show that the art of embroidery need not look dated, only to be retired to storage, rather it can seamlessly blend in with today’s interiors. Jan’s goal is to keep this ancient, hands-on skill very much alive and desired. When you peek at her online collection, I think she’s well on her way.
