The philosophy at Crisp and Dene is simple, we believe in honest materials & simple decoration.
Everything that leaves our workshops has been made using carefully selected natural materials that stand the test of time, we use fabrics that change becoming more beautiful the more they are used. All our fabrics have been woven & printed to our original designs. We elevate humble household linens & celebrate utility."
Crisp & Dene was launched by William Crisp in 2011. William works from his studio on the Suffolk coast developing seasonal ranges of simple homewares under the Crisp & Dene label. "It's unpretentious hardworking household fabrics that really inspire me. I wanted to draw on the tradition of functional household textiles & design a range that celebrates simplicity.
I always think when I'm coming up with a new idea, that if it's going to become part of someone's home it needs to be special. I always ask myself through the design & development process what would my customer want, what do I need to do to make this feel comfortably part of their home? That often means taking off much of the design or decoration. I think we've captured the essence traditional household textiles, I'm proud to produce honest, reliable & timeless products."
In addition to their own label Crisp & Dene design & develop ranges of homeware for a select group of high end brands in the UK. Their specialist knowledge & trusted relationships with British manufacturing partners means they can deliver a quality & where ever possible British product that realises the potential of the brands they work with.
