Classic Textiles

Classic Textiles was set up by the Centre for Advanced Textiles, a research, education and commercial department within Glasgow School of Art, to pioneer high-quality digital productions of great 20th century textile designs.

The 2003 Lucienne Day range was the first to be developed. Classic Textiles worked in close consultation with the designer in order to achieve authentic new productions of the historic designs. Lucienne personally selected the twelve textiles she felt were most suitable for revival. The designs are printed to order on a linen union base, and a wide range of colourways are available.

The Classic Textiles printworks are now based just over the road from the famous Charles Rennie Mackintosh building. New state-of-the-art digital printing equipment allows for a much increased volume of production.
