I’m going to tell you a little bit about the company and then I’m going to show you some of my favourite collections of theirs. James Hare has been established since 1865 so they are a bit of a tradition in this country. In the 1910’s James Hare became a cloth manufacturing mill and the biggest stockist of Harris Tweed in the world. Their factory was known as the ‘Cloth Headquarters of the British Isles’, it was the largest textile distribution house in Great Britain. In the 1930’s they boasted that if a London tailor placed an order at 9am, by 9.10am the material would be on its way to the train station!

In the 1980’s the woollen manufacturing firm was sold, along with the brand “Hare of England” and the company re established itself as a silk merchant becoming the leading supplier of the bridal and fashion trade. Today, James Hare is Britain’s leading silk specialist and produces luxury textiles for the fashion and interiors industries. They are favourites with leading designers and decorators, James Hare’s fabrics are famous worldwide.

Now on to my favourite part, the beautiful fabrics and wallcoverings!

James Hare Pimlico Interiors Collection

The Pimlico collection is a modern take on classic styles, traditional fabrics are given a modern twist ensuring the look is sophisticated and chic.  I absolutely love these pastel colours, they are so feminine and sweet. These are great inspiration for a girl’s bedroom.

This is one of their new collections, drawing inspiration from a range of eras in James Hare’s history. A combination of classic and modern looks, these fabrics are ideal for curtains, bed-heads, blinds and other decorative detailing. I love the textures of these fabrics and also the way the light reflects off, absolutely stunning.

 James Hare Silk Wallcoverings

Now as James Hare are famous for silk I’d like to show you some of their lovely silk wallcoverings. They have natural texture and intense depths of colour and have over 500 plain colours, as well as woven and embroidered patterns. They are great for creating a dramatic feature wall and I think they give a luxurious, expensive look to a room.
