VINTAGE TEXTILES – reworking prints

I love to live with pattern, print and colour. Layering patterns and textures is visually stimulating but also draws out our desire for being tactile. The love of touch and feel. The print’s that I collect are genuine vintage and most are archived in museums. For me they are an art form from the past, they are a direct link to a time and era. I rework the prints to offer clients and mid-century collectors  accessories that complaint their furniture collections. The fabrics are in good condition, having not been used before. I do not rework something that has been a former curtain but do have a small stock of curtains which are often used in back drops and set designs. I have a shop on Etsy where you can see what I have in stock. https://www.etsy.com/shop/FabulousNelly

Hello world!

Welcome to my blog.

Fabulous Nelly is a mid-century girl, collecting and reworking mid century textiles. Inspired by city living, fashion, interiors and the arts.

Living in London, always on the look out for new finds, from vintage to contemporary design for interiors and  happy to share the experience of sourcing and re working the finds.

On the move to other European cities (and beyond) always searching and enjoying meeting new people who are doing something interesting and creative with their time.

My aim is to share my finds, sourcing and experience from trips.

Keen to collaborate with other designers or interested parties.
