Trisha Needham

trisha_needham10Having graduated from the Royal College of Art in London, Trisha Needham launched her first hand painted scarf collection at the Chelsea Crafts Fair and then went on to produce collections for fashion and interiors. She designs and prints all her textiles herself on a flat screen printing table in her studio in London and makes the products up with the help of two machinists.

Her work has sold successfully to stores, boutiques and galleries including Liberty, Heals and Fenwicks in London, Nordstrom, the Guggenheim Museum in the U.S.A. and Barneys in New York and Japan. She has been commissioned by private and corporate clients and Jon Snow the Channel 4 news reader wears her ties.

The hallmark of her work is her passion for colour and pattern, inspired by her love of gardening and her allotment and architectural forms such as the Guggenheim Museum and now the Olympic site. It can be a favourite flower or a delicate seed head, even a truck’s oil filter found on the road while cycling, has led her to produce bold, striking and distinctive silk screen prints on iridescent velvets, silks, fine wools and crisp linens. Echinacea, pea pods, poppies and stripes and spots are all featured in this year’s collection.
