RHS and Dexam reveal two major new kitchen textile collaborations

Following a number of successful collaborations across a wide range of kitchenware since 2020, the Royal Horticultural Society has revealed two major new collaborations with Dexam.

Launched in August, the new textile ranges – called Birds and Gertrude Jekyll – use designs inspired by artwork from the RHS Lindley Collections.

The Birds collection includes an adult apron, a set of two tea towels, double oven gloves and a peg bag. Bringing together modern colours that will brighten up any kitchen and the true beauty of nature, the design of the collection has a stone background, with a heritage-inspired pattern featuring foliage and birds in teal, pink and yellow.

Meanwhile, the Gertrude Jekyll collection also includes an adult apron, a set of two tea towels, double oven gloves and a peg bag. Its design uses a tile pattern from the marble pavement of the Duomo in Milan contrasted with a floral and leafy spray design, which is reproduced and repeated.

Both designs are adapted from the Designs for Carving scrapbook by the pioneering gardening genius Gertrude Jekyll (1843–1932).

“Following successful launches in 2020, 2022 and this year, we are delighted to be continuing this productive and inspirational collaboration with these two new ranges,” commented Helen Boardman, product manager at Dexam. “It is, as ever, a delight to partner with the RHS, to make use of its wonderful design assets and to support its work. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the UK’s favourite gardening charity.”

Cathy Snow, licensing manager at RHS, continued: “These two new designs from Dexam perfectly demonstrate the versatility of the artwork held in our historical collections within the Lindley Library and show how that artwork can be used in a bright, colourful and contemporary way. We are delighted with the continued success of our partnership with Dexam and the exceptionally creative way Dexam brings our imagery to its wonderful products.”
