David Whitehead and Sons reintroduces classic midcentury textile designs

If you like to make your own (or now someone who can make things for you), then it might be a good idea to bookmark the David Whitehead and Sons website. Why? Because some classic midcentury textiles are being reproduced in the very near future.

David Whitehead and Sons has been making textiles since the 19th century in the north west of England, but made its name in the 1950s, producing bright and bold fabrics and textiles for the new homes of the mid-20th century. Those designs were designed by the likes of Terence Conran, Marian Mahler and Jacqueline Groag, sitting in the archives of the company for half a century since.

But now they are returning in all their midcentury glory. Six designs will be produced by David Whitehead, which are ideal for converting into curtains, soft furnishings or if you are really brave, perhaps even some clothing.

The maker will be selling these directly very soon, with a pre-order facility almost ready to go live. So do keep an eye on that website. As for price, that should be around £75 per metre.
