Anna’s passion for the countryside stems from her childhood on the family farm, participating in country sports and working in the shooting industry for a number of years. Her love of the countryside, country life, and country pursuits have influenced her designs from start to finish from seasonal colour palettes to the understanding of traditional and practical clothing whether worn out in the field, on the weekend or in the office.
Anna has textiles in her family history dating back over 200 years. She was brought up in the Essex countryside surrounded by her ancestor’s legacy that goes back as far as the 18th century. George Courtauld & Co. was founded by her relative George Courtauld and was a manufacturer of fabric, clothing and artificial fibres. Many of the linings used in Anna’s beautiful garments are made from viscose (an artifical silk) which Courtaulds acquired a patent for in 1904. The fabric was highly successful and was responsible for transforming Courtaulds into the world’s leading man-made fibre production company. Hundreds of years later Anna follows in the footsteps of her successful forebears. Read more… Butler Stewart’s 18th Century Heritage.
