UK, London. In SYD Q17 we presented a hand-embroidered fabric range called Couture by Fameed Khalique. It is one of many collections to come from the UK-based supplier, which has released additional fabrics as part of the collection. 

“In this collection I wanted to try and capture the incredible skills of couture but within an interior setting,” explains founder of the company, Fameed Khalique. “I developed the hand-embroidered collection very closely with a workshop in India. There really is no limit to what can be achieved by these artisans and this intricate and striking collection is partly inspired by their exceptional talent and skill.”

The other influence comes from the fashion industry which is where Khalique started his career. He explains how the pieces produced at the Indian workshop, which cannot be named, is widely used by international couture fashion houses.

The quality of the embroidery results in stunning pieces that are “surprisingly durable” and suitable for use as wallcoverings. Each piece can be made into custom panels depending on the client’s requirements. 

“I wanted to create a collection of beautiful embroideries that are not only visually striking and unique, but versatile so that they can be applied to various places within the home, such as accessories, soft furnishings, furniture and of course wallcoverings. I wanted to create a collection that would inspire designers to be creative with their materials,” says Khalique.
