The Selvedge Blanket by Wallace & Sewell
Wallace Sewell is a textile design company that many Londoners will know already – even if they don’t know it. Travel on the Northern, Bakerloo or Jubilee lines and you will see the company’s colourful moquettes adorning the train’s seats as it snakes its way through the city’s tunnels every day. Tiny impressions of London’s landmarks can be found in each of these patterns including Big Ben, the London Eye and Tower Bridge, and this is just a snippet of what Wallace Sewell have produced for the UK market. Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell are the duo behind this renowned studio. Wallace Sewell has been inspired over the years by the Bauhaus design ethos; carefully coupling the handmade with the mechanical.
