Juliet Travers Wallpapers & Fabrics was founded in 2013 by textiles designer and Edinburgh College of Art graduate Juliet Travers.
A farmer’s daughter who grew up in Scotland with her five siblings, Juliet’s love of drawing was instilled in her by her mother who used to paint Disney characters and story book murals on each of her children’s bedroom doors. Juliet’s husband is also from a farming family in Zimbabwe and the brand clearly reflects her strong connection to wildlife and her surroundings, both in the UK and Africa.
Africa holds a very special place in Juliet's heart. Its a place where the savannah whispers, the wildlife dances and every heart beat syncs with the rhythm of natures grand spectacle. After a recent trip visiting family in Tanzania, Juliet has returned home full of ideas for more Safari themed designs so watch this space for new work in 2024.....
It was when working for De Gournay in London that she realised there was niche for mural-like prints and patterns that are both bold in impact and delicate in detail. Shortly after leaving the family-run firm, the brand was born. She now has a huge client base with her products used in both commercial and residential projects across the globe.
Juliet hand draws and creates each design in her garden studio and then forms all the colour palettes before the patterns are printed in traditional English factories using the iconic gravure printing method. This intricate process is vital to the brand as it replicates Juliet’s every brush stroke and pencil mark seen in her original drawings.
Each wallpaper is coloured using hand mixed dyes and printed on sustainable papers with weighty linen-cotton cloths digitally printed to match.
