Wallace Sewell

Wallace Sewell designed this moquette fabric for the London Overground fleet of new trains starting service in 2010. A dream commission for any textile designer, this project was perfect for designers Emma Sewell and Harriet Wallace-Jones who are well known for their use of colour and geometry in their range of scarves, throws and cushions.

Building on this association with Transport for London, they were recently commissioned by the London Transport Museum to interpret the moquette pattern as a dobby woven chenille throw. As with all the Wallace Sewell products, the throw is made in the UK. Its woven in 50% wool and 50% cotton chenille and you can buy it online at the London Transport Museum shop.
