de Le Cuona

It was a love of linen and an attention to detail that first fired Bernie de Le Cuona’s desire to create beautiful fabrics.
She crafted her very first design into a cushion which buyers ordered immediately. Now after some twenty years in the business Bernie has a reputation that is second to none for developing exquisite fabric collections harnessing the colour and beauty produced by the best International master weavers. Her immense skill and natural flair for fabrics also demands a refined finish, look and drape which make them truly unique.

Artisan techniques underpin each new fabric introduced into the collection – Bernie has led the way with stone-washed linens, embossed linens and the use of tonal wool yarns to add a special dimension to unique embroideries on superb quality linen base cloths and, of course, her signature wool and cotton paisleys which are recognised worldwide. Her cushion collection enjoys the same reputation.Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 6.58.14 PMScreen Shot 2014-04-15 at 6.56.50 PMScreen Shot 2014-04-15 at 6.57.02 PMScreen Shot 2014-04-15 at 6.57.17 PMScreen Shot 2014-04-15 at 10.07.42 PM Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 10.08.27 PM
