Helen Baker creates contemporary silhouette inspired fabrics and soft furnishing products for stylish family living.
For a girl who grew up and lived in Cornwall on and off for 25 years, the coast will always be a big influence in my life. After leaving my home county and moving to Wiltshire 18 months ago, I was looking for some Cornish inspiration to keep the connection with my roots. Cornwall has a strong sense of identity and has shaken its outdated quaint, sleepy fishing village image replaced with a young, fresh and vibrant Cornwall. I set out to look for fabrics for our house that reflected this sense of style but was frustrated with not being able to find anything suitable. So being a creative and determined person I taught myself textile and digital design to create my own. With the move came a new house to renovate and the perfect place to try out my new fabrics before releasing my first collection inspired by modern coastal living.
My designs are;
- gender and age neutral
- nature inspired
- created and printed in the UK
- on 100% natural cotton fabric
- printed using eco-friendly inks.
- for contemporary family living
