Emily Carter is an award-winning British designer based in London, specialising in hand illustrated silk accessories, stationery and furnishings. The collections incorporate themes from natural history, flora, fauna and scientific illustration to create surreal and unique illustrations and prints.
Each scarf and square tells its own unique story and begins as a detailed original drawing, where endless experiments in colour and composition lead to the finished product. With an emphasis on exquisite and timeless design, our products are intended to be treasured for a lifetime, and are made using the finest craftsmanship.
Printed on high quality silk and hemmed and packaged by hand, every item is made in England to the highest standard, offering a luxury piece of British design.
Emily is a member of the British Fashion Council and has exhibited at both London and Paris Fashion Week since 2015. In which time she has received numerous awards for her work, such as Forbes 30 Under 30 and Drapers 30 Under 30, and has stocked her products internationally in stores such as Liberty & Selfridges.
Emily has been featured regularly in publications such as British Vogue, Forbes, Vogue Arabia, Stylist and The Financial Times, and her luxury accessories have been worn by icons such as Kate Moss. Emily has also worked on private commissions for celebrity clients including Angelina Jolie, and has exclusively collaborated with brands such as Harrods, Aspinal of London and Selfridges.
Alongside the brand, Emily has also worked for luxury brands including Harrods, where between 2017 - 2021 she was offered an unique opportunity to lead and create the in-house themes and designs for the store.
Emily Carter supports British manufacturing in order to promote ethical labour and sustainable production. The brand does not outsource abroad, proving that you can build an honest company through local and sustainable manufacturing.
The word ‘craft’ has become a signifier of value, and represents the importance of knowledge, skill and above all, ingenuity involved in a creative process. Each Emily Carter product is designed by hand, emphasising the value of sustainable and original design.
We have incorporated our values into every possible part of the business, including our manufacturing where our products are proudly printed in England and made in small quantities by London based independent tailors. Our packaging is also fully recyclable and plastic-free where possible.
We believe that quality plays an important role in the sustainability of this industry; and for this reason our products are ethically manufactured from the best quality fabrics, and designed to last a lifetime.
