Textile designer Josephine Munsey launched her first designs after a series of lockdowns in the UK meant plenty of time in her studio, in Stroud. She has worked for various Design Houses where she learnt about different methods of fabric and wallpaper printing. Jo felt it was time to begin designing for herself. Her husband Greg has joined her to assist the running of the business allowing Josephine to keep designing.
Our aim is to help you create a home that is full of colour and pattern. A place that makes you happy and inspires you. Humour and love are put into our products, we offer a consultation service to bring all these products to life.
Ideas for her designs come from years of personal sketchbooks – a huge stack of images and sketches. Reference and inspiration has come from exhibitions, travelling, her mother’s collection of ferns, and the woods surrounding her studio. All the designs begin with a simple sketch of the repeat, in pencil or fine line pen. Then a small section of the design is painted in colour, as a trial. Once a trial is successful the whole design is drawn or painted. Josephine always likes to paint in repeat, to keep this practice alive. It is only at the end of the creative process that the artwork is scanned and checked on a computer. Computer aided design allows her to create different colourways for each design.
Josephine offers a custom service which allows you to pick the colour and scale of your wallpaper to suit your project. She can also design you a unique design if you have an idea for a project.
