Christopher Farr Cloth

Our story

Cloth, the fabric division of Christopher Farr was founded in 2000. For Christopher, along with business partners Matthew Bourne and Michal Silver, designing fabrics was not only a long held ambition but a natural step to make for the rug business that was founded in 1988. The collection currently comprises over 60 designs of prints and weaves, utilizing the highest qualities of cloth, from combed Egyptian cottons and Belgian linens to acrylic dyed fabrics suitable for outdoor use.

The printed collection is produced in the UK, a large part of which is hand printed by the same family-owned company that produced the original designs by Michael Szell, that forms an important part of the current collection. With an exciting stable of designers and artists such as Kit Kemp, Javier Mariscal Kate Blee, Ilse Crawford and Ptolemy Mann, Cloth continues to expand the collection based on the same principles of artistic experimentation, a willingness to explore  and to experiment with new techniques.
