How do you describe to people what you do and your design style?
Samuel “David Watson” collaborates with British artists sharing their love on the silk. All the designs are of British locations and scenes and are a mix of different mediums. Currently there are 18 artists involved and Sam is constantly looking for other artwork to artwork to add into the range. The artists are the core of the brand with their stories and photos accompanying the silk in the marketing.
What sort of comments do you get about your designs?
The lovely thing is that everybody likes a different design. I hope that the range of mediums and styles of artwork appeals to as many people as possible without loosing it’s British identity. People may have a favourite design because it depicts a favourite holiday spot, a commute, a dog walk or their home. I love that every time a silk is bought it gives a different story and memory for the purchaser…
