About Sarah Campbell
An internationally acclaimed London-based textile designer, Sarah Campbell was the co-founder of the renowned design partnership Collier Campbell with her sister Susan Collier. They worked together for more than fifty years. Since Susan's early death in 2011, Sarah has worked independently, and has successfully established a new chapter in her creative story.
Verve, love of pattern and color, and inventive freshness are the hallmarks of all Sarah Campbell’s work. Whatever the project she uniquely combines her expertise and experience with originality and joy, both serious and playful. With a lifetime in pattern she is constantly developing her skills and design language, marrying the hand-painted, for which she's justly known, with new digital technology where needed.
She has ongoing design commissions for textiles with Michael Miller Fabrics, home goods for West Elm and giftware for Magpie and others. She is the co-author of 'The Collier Campbell Archive: 50 Years of Passion in Pattern' (published 2012) and the many designs, paintings and treasures in the archive collection, which dates from the early 1960s, remain within the family. The company produces its own shopful of special products - scarves, accessories, cards and gifts. They include many unique pieces hand-painted and hand-made by Sarah. www.sarahcampbelldesigns.com
