Member Spotlight: Emily Carter
UKFT member Emily Carter is an award-winning British designer specialising in hand illustrated silk accessories, stationery and furnishings.
The collections incorporate themes from natural history, flora, fauna and scientific illustration to create surreal and unique illustrations and prints.
Each scarf and square tells its own unique story and begins as a detailed original drawing, where endless experiments in colour and composition lead to the finished product. With an emphasis on exquisite and timeless design, the products are intended to be treasured for a lifetime, and are made using the finest craftsmanship.
Printed on high quality silk and hemmed and packaged by hand, every item is made in England to the highest standard, offering a luxury piece of British design. The word ‘craft’ has become a signifier of value, and represents the importance of knowledge, skill and above all, ingenuity involved in a creative process.
Each Emily Carter product is designed by hand, emphasising the value of sustainable and original design. Emily has incorporated these values into every possible part of the business, including the manufacturing where the products are proudly printed in England and made in small quantities by London-based independent tailors.
Emily Carter packaging is also recyclable and plastic-free where possible. The company believes that quality plays an important role in the sustainability of this industry; and for this reason its products are ethically manufactured from the best quality fabrics, and designed to last a lifetime.
