Bright stripes on the set of Downton Abbey

Couple of months ago I had a great pleasure to do an editorial shoot for Funding Circle. This time it was The Stripes Company, fantastic online fabric business run by Maria Hopwood. They offer deckchair canvas, interior fabrics and accessories for beach and home.

It was such a great shoot as her shop was bright with vibrant colours from fabrics, mixed with the beautiful sunlight. Maria was really friendly and we talked about her business and how after years of French-influenced neutral designs, Britain was ready for the bright stripes.

Her business is very successful, her fabrics have been featured in Downton Abbey and used in Shakespeare's Globe Theatre….


Her are some photos. Enjoy!
