In the summer of 2008 Lewis & Wood moved to Woodchester Mill, a magnificent building in the Stroud Valleys - a far cry from the company’s small beginnings in a London basement, where it was first formed by textile printer, Stephen Lewis and interior designer, Joanna Wood in 1993.
Since then, Lewis & Wood has created a substantial collection of textiles and wallpapers, manufactured in Britain. The success of the company lies in its determination to be different.
The commitment to produce original products starts in their screen printing studio, where creative director, Magdalen Jebb collaborates with a variety of freelance designers, from different disciplines, to encourage an original approach. They then work with weavers, dyers, printers and finishers to try new techniques. This isn’t always easy, but it does make the result a lot more interesting.
