Emily Carter is an award winning British designer based in London, 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, our 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.
Emily graduated from London College of Fashion in 2014 and has since worked for luxury brands such as Harrods where she is currently the Lead Designer for Personalisation & Gift Wrap.
The brand is supported by the Prince's Trust and British Fashion Council and has exhibited at both London and Paris Fashion Week for the past 3 years. Emily has also been supported the Natwest Entrepreneur Accelerator and was a finalist for 'The Future of Fashion Programme', sponsored by NJAL.
SUSTAINABLE ETHICAL ORIGINAL
Emily Carter supports British manufacturing in order to promote ethical labour and sustainable production. The brand avoids outsourcing abroad for cheap goods, proving that you can build an honest company through local and sustainable manufacturing.
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 importance of sustainable and original design, which doesn’t feed the fury of fast fashion. The designs do not go out of season, aiming to promote a lifestyle of living with less and buying clothes to last.
In a world with an unstable future, creativity adds purpose and identity to society. Sustainability and quality are becoming increasingly sought after; and for this reason our products are ethically manufactured from the best quality fabrics, and are designed to last a lifetime.
