Charlie & Fenton
Hello and welcome to Charlie and Fenton, we are an independent textile studio in Melbourne Australia, founded in early 2010.
The mission was simple, to offer people high quality, unique soft furnishings in a market that is so saturated with throw-away poorly made goods. In Australia we know great quality exists but where is it and how do we get our hands on it? Great design should be inclusive and accessible, that’s what this store and our approach is all about!
To put it simply we love textiles! which is why when you shop with Charlie and Fenton you can expect to shop with confidence in the design, manufacture, quality and sustainability of your purchase.
The Charlie and Fenton look is a blend of bright angular geometric patterns, off kilter painterly watercolours and the occasional unexpected psychedelic triumph! while we pay attention to colour and pattern trends we tend not to focus our designs on them…but rather, largely experiment with different elements like colour, shape and texture and are only satisfied once we look at our designs and say “WOW” anything less and it doesn’t go to print!
When designing our ranges we first select only the finest natural fibers to print on, from thick and luxurious brushed cottons to beautifully textured Belgian linens, only the best makes the cut. We then use a combination of classic design techniques like sketching, painting and “old school” pattern repeat methods mixed with the expertise and advise of our local digital printers who guide us in creating our special designs.
We want to thank you for your interest in Charlie & Fenton and for supporting small business with an emphasis on local, hand made textiles with high-end quality!
