Colour is very much at the heart of Kate's fabrics and homewares. Bold colours and simple motifs contrast with flamboyant one-off designs, often influenced by her time in the Far East. Having grown up on an organic farm, surrounded by wildlife, Kate studied Fine Art and History of Art, before being drawn to a career working in business in London, Singapore and Hong Kong for much of her twenties and early 30s. Kate's return to rural England, heralded the start of a return to the creative arts and a fabric design commission which set her off on her new career, forming the Kate Medlicott studio in 2016. Kate is now based in the South West of England, where she lives with her husband and two small children.
I am delighted to launch my first woven fabric, Basilica, inspired by patterns in Giotto's frescos at Assisi. I first visited Assisi as an art student. When I returned a decade later, I was struck by the subtle intertwining patterns in the background to many of Giotto's paintings. I captured some of these at the time in my sketch book and have brought them to life another ten years on as my first woven fabric. With sustainability at the heart of my business, Basilica is woven for me by an historic family-owned mill in England which has been in operation since 1720.
Basilica joins my Attic and Journeyman Collections to offer an eclectic mix of unique and colourful fabrics.
All of my fabrics are printed or woven in England.
