A little bit about Laura AshleyThe famous fashion and home furnishings company was named for its founder, Laura Ashley, and was launched back in the 1950s. The origin of the brand came from a visit to the V&A museum to see an exhibit about traditional handicrafts. Laura was inspired to create her own quilts, but as she struggled to find any suitable fabrics in shops, she set about producing her own.
Her desire to bring back traditional-style fabrics led to a successful brand that is still going strong now in the 21st century. Originally producing only fabrics, after the release of the Roman Holiday movie during the 1960s, Laura Ashley moved into producing headscarves and from there into other types small home items like tea towels and placemats.
It wasn’t until the end of the 1960s that the brand progressed into producing clothing items, and then another ten years before their furniture lines were launched.
