The idea for the company was born in 2005, when a collector of Angie’s prints mentioned that her work might translate well onto printed fabric. We were intrigued by that idea, and spent some time looking into how textiles are produced.
We started with the rather unambitious aim of producing two of Angie’s designs and taking it from there. Since then St Jude’s has become a small but thriving business. We were delighted to be named winners in the Elle Decoration British Design Awards in both 2011 and 2012.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with a number of artists, makers and printers we admire, including Mark Hearld, Ed Kluz and Emily Sutton. We give the artists we collaborate with control over important aspects of the process, such as choosing colourways. And we always provide them with a proper credit for their work.
We take an interest in fine art and commercial design, but we are particularly inspired by work produced in the middle ground between the two. We love Edward Bawden’s graphic design and illustration work for London Transport, for example. And Eric Ravilious’ ceramics for Wedgwood. It appears that some wonderful and unexpected things can happen when a talented individual meets a visually-aware organisation. This is very much the spirit we try to foster at St. Jude’s.
