About Laura's Beau
Founded in 1994, Laura's Beau is a household textile manufacturer, specialising in licensed William Morris designs.
We began when Gill founded the company with the guidence of her late father Ted. After 55 years in the industry himself, Ted was involved in the highest level in design, development, manufacturing, buying and retailing. The insight he had into the market provided a fantasic basis to set up Laura's Beau.
Ted taught Gill all about the business as she was growing up and as she entered the industry herself, was incredible at sharing his knowledge. We grew from the contacts he introduced us to and the supplier relationships built back then still remain today.
The fundamental principles of the business were laid down in 1994. The emphasis is on traditional quality. All products are made from 100% cotton, all products are printed, quilted, pvc-coated and manufactured in the UK. Ted’s "old-school" principle of "good business with nice people" continues to underpin the business to this day. If you want to know how we ensure our fabric is as environmentally friendly as possible, please read this piece.
As well as our products, we also are well established within the football and rugby industry. Their logo branded textiles we provide are all designed to feature their branding and are firm favourites within the clubs. From small to Premier League clubs, we work with many.
We now also create digital printing for everyone. From tea towels to tote bags, you can print your own designs on products to cater to your audience. Print your logo, design or photo of your choice onto a tote to sell in your gift shop or as an advertisement for your brand to give away to fans. You can upload your photos online or contact us for more information and help designing your products.
Since 2001, we've been producing our own ranges of British-made high quality floral textiles. We have a French textile archive from which we faithfully restore designs to their former glory. These exclusive designs can all be seen on our website.
We also licence and produce William Morris designs. We have always loved William Morris designs and knew this was something we'd love to do, to carry on sharing his art to new generations. In multiple ranges with different products, including William Morris fabric, we hope you love these designs as much as we do.
As we've grown over the years, we've been able to do some exciting things. We've got an exclusive supplier for example in Japan which sell our British products to a whole new market. There's something exciting about knowing that our products which are printed and manufactured here in the UK are being exported around the world to be enjoyed by so many people in their homes.
We continue, and will always continue, to create products we love that are focused on the traditional principles that we began with in 1994. To print and manufacture in the United Kingdom, to have an integrity that we know where and how our products are made and to create beautiful products that are enjoyed around the World.
We're always creating new products and licencing new William Morris designs, so make sure to keep checking back to see what we do next. As always, make sure to check out our full collection.
