The first thing that Nicole Fabre bought from an antique market was a piece of French antique textile. For her it afforded as much pleasure as a painting would. ‘I absolutely fell in love with it,’ she recalls.
The more she acquired, the more her passion for textiles, in particular those of the French 18th and 19th Century, grew.
This passion led to Nicole producing her own fabrics inspired by her impressive archive. After two years of planning and research helped by her co-director John Laflin (Design Director of Liberty of London Prints 1974-1998) Nicole Fabre Designs have launched a variety of collections from natural linens, vegetable-dyed linen, hand-loom woven checks and stripes to exquisite hand screen printed fabrics.
Nicole is a fabulous artist, full of passion and energy, her fabrics are regularly in World of Interiors, Home and Garden UK and other international publications.
