One of Fashions Best Kept Secrets

The Design Library has the world's largest and best organised collections of documentary fabrics, original paintings, wallpapers, embroideries and yarn dyes. It's US collection is vast, held across a 12,000 square foot loft in a converted fabric mill in New York’s Hudson Valley, where over 7 million examples of textiles, wallpapers, pattern books and embroideries are stored. In London, its building is more modest, situated just off Oxford Street, but its collection is still eye-popping, including samples of designs stretching back to the 18th century and from all over the world.

The Design Library is not open to the public but is used extensively by fashion designers and is the professional source for surface design, clients are fashion, home, packaging and paper industries.
