UKFT Member Spotlight: Dalliance and Noble


Dalliance and Noble create luxurious, digitally-printed silk accessories for both men and women.

The company is run by James and Karen Skinner, a mother and son team. Award winning British designer James Skinner is the artist behind the brand. James’s career started in 2014 when he was selected by Texselect as one of the 24 best graduating textile designers in Britain. He has worked in Italy and London creating designs for companies such as Kenzo, Valentino and Etro.

James designs his scarves the traditional way by meticulously hand drawing the illustrative artwork onto a singular sheet of paper. This process from inspiration to the finished design often takes up to three months. Great care is spent on ensuring that every product created is a modern piece of wearable artwork, all of which is manufactured in the UK.
