One serendipitous afternoon...
Christina discusses the delights of deliciously faded florals with her dear friend and fellow Vogue alumnus, Brigette Buchanan.
Enchanted by an ancient quilt that had once belonged to Brigette’s aunt, a thunderbolt of inspiration struck: they would create a mail order business selling poignantly gentle florals redolent of a vanishing England.
Their very first fabric, ‘Bees’ is born – and so is Cabbages & Roses.
Its evocative name is a nod to the marriage of its enduring softness and beauty with a earthier utilitarian sensibility and the sense that everything it makes will be built to last.
With that, our founders go straight to work at Brook Cottage. They stuff envelopes with mail order catalogues. They pop up in Liberty’s. They feature amid the pages of magazines, whose editors are enchanted. They studiously avoid spread sheets. And they drink some more tea.
