Velvet Thistle is small business making bespoke lampshades.  I started this business at my kitchen table and now have orders everyday and a studio for production and booked appointments.  I sell a small selection of soft furnishings, which are truly unique and are only sold on my website.  I also have lots of remnants of fabric available for small projects. 


I have been lucky enough to collaborate and work for a number of local artists, designers and interior decorators including Charlotte Gaisford, Claudia Rankin, Re-found Objects, Vintage at the Tower and Susi Bellamy and I am delighted to have had features in North East Living (2017) & 25 Beautiful Homes (2019).
