Local Designer Verity Wilkinson has recently launched her stunning new collection of Layla Faye wall coverings, working with national retail and wholesale company, Brewers.

The Layla Faye brand offers a stunning range of fresh, vibrant designs that offer customers an uplifting individuality. The ethos is to create a fresh range with a playful 60’s liberated spirit. A touch of bohemian femininity is intertwined with bold bright prints offering a refreshing twist on modern design.

Verity, as the designer and founder of the business, said “I have always had passion and enthusiasm for design.” Raised in Lancashire by a potter and artist, she trained as a textile and surface pattern designer at college and university before travelling and working around the world throughout her twenties.

She said:

“Inspiration for my designs comes from travel around the world, living in quirky homes and exciting cultures and a love of fifties/sixties design and music.

“My designs originate from travel, nature and architecture and I am always on the lookout for something to spark a new design and usually find inspiration in the great outdoors.

“All the designs are united by a nostalgic retro-modern feel and bright happy colours that add a contemporary flow throughout the collection.”

Verity, who works from her Studio in Barnoldswick, has been helped by one of the Chamber’s International Trade Team. Mike Beckett, an experienced International Trade Advisor with over 30 years’ interior design experience, was able to provide help and guidance to the business. Mike commented:

“Having spent most of my career working in the Home Interiors industry and having had the opportunity to work with many talented designers, I was immediately impressed with Verity’s design style and portfolio.”

“It is great to see what Verity has already achieved and I am sure that we are going to see and hear a great deal more in the future. Talent and drive are a powerful combination in any business and the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce is proud to work with her.”

She said:

I am proud to be manufacturing our wallpaper from my home county of Lancashire. Our wallpaper is manufactured using eco-friendly water-based inks on the best quality paper in a world class factory. Our paper has been flexo and surface printed using methods that originated in Lancashire 200 years ago.”
