Established in 1970 by Tricia Guild, Designers Guild designs and wholesales furnishing fabrics,

The Designers Guild business philosophy is to combine creativity and innovation with the highest levels of quality: quality of design, product, service and people.
Artistry, creativity and innovation is at the heart of the creative process at Designers Guild and shaped by the guiding principle of lifestyle that continues to drive the business today. Each design starts its life with a seed of an idea or point of inspiration and often planted by Guild herself and always with an artist’s brush or pencil. Derived from such diverse sources as Eastern decorative art, Italian architecture, flowers and nature to classical documents.
Since the early days of hand screen printing, the company now employ a variety of techniques and methods to achieve their aims – from rotary Galvano printing to state of the art digital printing. This method enables greater freedom of design and is so true to the original artwork that it has become something of the company’s trademark.
The Designers Guild range currently has nearly 9000 fabrics and 2000 wallpapers including printed floral and geometric fabrics; plains, checks and stripes, jacquards, tapestries, silks, velvets, trimmin. The highest qualities of cloth are sourced; from combed Egyptian cottons and Scottish linen unions to Swiss woven damasks. Printers and engravers use state of the art technology and strict quality control systems are applied both in-house and at their suppliers.
