Debuting in 2019, this fabric line was created by Riley Cloward whose mother, Cindy, raised her to be a Jane Austen heroine like Elizabeth Bennet — smart and opinionated, with a little sass. She wishes she could spend her days strolling the idyllic hills of the Lake District or perusing shops for the perfect ribbons for the ball. Instead she created the Pemberley Collection so that she can wrap up in a quilt and dream of her Mr. Darcy saying “You must allow me to tell you how ardently I love and admire you.”
New Jane Austen at Home Collection
These fabrics came on the market in late August, 2020 just in time to make masks before AGM. Each of the florals are reproductions of fabrics from a coverlet quilt that hangs in the Jane Austen House in the village of Chawton, UK. It was made by Jane, her sister Cassandra and their mother. The exact date for the quilt is not known, but the Austens were working on a quilt in May 1811, as Jane wrote in a letter to her sister, Cassandra, “Have you remembered to collect pieces for the patchwork – we are at a standstill.” Cassandra was staying with her brother, Edward, on his estate in Kent, where there would have been many fabric pieces available from the dressmaker who made clothes for his eleven children. One piece, Correspondence, contains passages from Jane’s personal letters that are owned by Jane Austen’s house.
