Colour is very much at the heart of Kate Medlicott fabrics. Bold colours and simple motifs contrast with flamboyant one-off designs, often influenced by Kate's time in Asia, English floral and fauna and
her Belgian heritage.
Having grown up on an organic farm in the middle of the English countryside surrounded by animals and wildlife, Kate studied Fine Art and History of Art in the North of England, before being drawn to a career working in business in London, Singapore and Hong Kong for much of her twenties and early 30s.
However, Kate's return to rural England, heralded the start of a return to the creative arts and a fabric design commission which set her off on her new career, forming the Kate Medlicott studio in 2016.
All Kate Medlicott designs are hand drawn by Kate in her Somerset studio and printed in England onto British-woven linen. From trailing prints and patterned seed heads, large-scale florals and small-scale geometrics, Kate’s designs are striking and understated, characterised by a bold contemporary colour palette.
To date, Kate has launched three collections – Attic, Journeyman and Asian Sojourn.
