Debby Tenquist’s passion for textiles ignited early. Whilst studying at the V&A & SOAS in her 20s, the ancient worlds of the Mughal and Ottoman Empires, and the Far East made a lasting impression on her aesthetic sensibility.
Her designs are inspired by a spectrum of the decorative arts from Mughal Miniatures to ancient textiles. This background in the art world and more recently as a garden designer, explain the historical and botanical lexicon evident in her designs which are seen through a modern lens, both in the layout, scale and range of colours.
Her first comprehensive range “Incredible India”, printed on an oyster linen, was launched late last year in America. For the European market she has taken the range and adapted the colour palette to one suited to the European interior and is available on a natural linen.
Debby’s designs are sustainably and digitally printed in England. The designs can be personalised both in colour or scale for special projects.
