What inspires your collections?

Inspiration for collections can come from everywhere and anywhere. We are hugely influenced by nature, as well as our local environs, music, cinema and travel. We could be inspired by a lady walking down the street in a wonderful coat! We keep our antennae on and inspiration can be found when we least expect it.

If you could see your fabric in any famous building which would it be and why?

The Chelsea Hotel, New York in its heyday.

How would you describe eporta in three words?
