Fall in Love with Lancaster and Cornish for Beautiful Sumptous Organic Haberdashery 

Let us introduce you to Lancaster & Cornish, an online ‘Paradise’ emporium for sumptuous organic cotton fabrics, delicately detailed laces,  ladylike haberdashery and the only brand for luxurious, stunning and contemporary textile prints, created by talented British designer Natalie Abram. The exquisite range of sumptuous, organic and artisan textiles have all been lovingly hand-picked by Sian Cornish, who has been following her passion for beautiful, artisan and completely natural fabrics since she founded the brand in 2012.

Sian is following in the footsteps of her great-grandfather Dick Myers Lancaster, who created the three-floor fabric emporium D.M Lancaster in the 1920s in Manchester. The family’s passion for fabric continued with her grandfather. Sian says, ‘my Grandfather was David Lancaster,   would visit the Lancashire mills buying off-cuts of ‘suiting’ (lengths of woven cloth), which he would then sell at his pillar at the Manchester free trade hall. The family business traded with people from all over the world, during the heyday of cotton trading.

This inspiration has stayed with Sian, who still owns and treasures the Shangtung silks which have been passed down to her from the original family business in Manchester. With Lancaster & Cornish, Sian has embraced this great family tradition and is now taking her inspiration from her fascinating and rich heritage into the future with Lancaster & Cornish’s online emporium, which sets out to recreate all the elegance and quality of a bye gone age of elegance and style  – with a hard to resist, contemporary edge.
