Historic England

“Historic England is the public body that helps people care for, enjoy and celebrate England’s spectacular historic environment; Humphries Weaving have supplied historic interiors fabric for a number of these key attractions” 

Under the previous banner of English Heritage the team at Humphries Weaving was called upon to advise on, and provide historic interiors fabric for, renovation schemes of National Importance.

Although small in number these projects are exacting and thoughtful, drawing on documented evidence and historical academic research reproduce authentic period interior schemes. In the case of Osborne House Richard Humphries construction an entirely new Jacquard harness to undertake the weaving of the unique isometric design seen in the Yellow Drawing Room.
