Tradescant & Son


The Collection

An extraordinary range of printed linens for interior design.

Bespoke Services

Curtain Making and Soft Furnishings

We offer a professional curtain making service to our clients, meaning that the interior designs who work with us can pick their fabric and forward us their project specifications, receiving the fully finished curtains with minimal fuss and project coordination to worry about.  Our talented and experienced curtain makers work in a spotlessly clean and well equipped atelier and we can produce a wide range of soft furnishings including curtains, blinds, roman blinds, cushions, bedspreads, swags, hard and soft pelmets and bolsters.

Tradescant and Son Premium Bespoke Cushion Collection

Premium Cushion Collection

In addition to these services, our collection of premium cushions is fully bespoke, and clients can create a cushion to their specific requirements, choosing any pattern, base fabric and trim from a choice of self or contrast piping, silk cord or luxury pom-poms.  Oversized at a generous 60cm x 60cm, our cushions come with a complementary overstuffed duck feather inner, although other choices are of course available.  We have the capacity for both small and large orders, and the turnaround is three to four weeks.  Due to the huge variety of possibilities, we do not hold stock of these cushions.

Prices vary depending on the trim chosen, so please contact us to discuss the requirements of your scheme or project.

About Tradescant & Son

We have created an original and unusual collection of printed textiles and accessories for interior design.

Luxury printed linens and home accessories

Our collection of printed linen is inspired by cabinets of curiosity and the natural world, and in particular by John Tradescant, the 17th century gardener and collector, whose collection formed the beginning of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford today.

The collection was developed over a two year period when we realised that our design research for Natural History was leaving us with a growing archive of unusual and extraordinary drawings and designs.  Developing these into our launch collection was a long and careful process of meticulous drawing and exhaustive colour testing.  The muted and sophisticated colourways that we chose to complement the richly coloured original drawings were selected to combine perfectly with the paints brands favoured by the interior designers we work with, so that a coherent look can be easily achieved.  We can also colour match our prints to your specific requirements.

All of the designs are available on a versatile off-white linen, with a selection also available on a rich warm cream linen and natural flax linen.  Our designs are printed onto a Belgian linen blend here in England.  Please contact us to request a book.  A PDF of our collection is available here.

This autumn we are launching a bespoke collection of premium cushions, available with a wide range of trims and finishes, so that our clients can easily and quickly bring our distinctive look into their projects.

If you came here looking for Natural History, we are now trade only, although you can find some treats from time to time over at our store on Not On The High Street.

Natural History is now Tradescant & Son Archive

Natural History’s esoteric collection of luxury retail products, encompassing accessibly priced linen cushions, crystal paperweights, premium leather notebooks and an extensive range of greetings cards joins Tradescant & Son as Tradescant & Son Archive.

Carried in top end retailers worldwide, including Lane Crawford (Hong Kong), Liberty, Anthropologie and many more, this collection has a outstanding reputation all over the world.

Available to retailers, this collection opens the Tradescant & Son brand to a wider audience and we look forward to working with the most innovative retailers again in 2015.  Get in touch to view the trade only catalogues.
