Fabrics & Linens: St. Jude’s Modern British

Norfolk–based gallery St.Judes specializes in British art, craft, and design; we love their retro-ish fabrics, which are printed in short runs and are available online. The North London Victorian skyline was the inspiration for Kensal Rising, a charming print designed by the owners of Old Town (another Norfolk-based company that makes “rag- and bone-man dodging original” British workwear in traditional fabrics).
