Robert Hamlin-Wright established the company in 1990 with the aim of providing designers and wholesalers with a modern and flexible printing service enabling the possibility of generating new products without the inherent problems of holding stock. Robert’s background in the fashion and furnishing industries dates back to 1976, when he hand screen-printed fabric for all the leading couture fashion houses. During the 1980′s he produced and marketed numerous furnishing and wallpaper collections.
In 2005, The Art of Wallpaper launched it’s first collection of wallpaper by Belynda Sharples which combined her uniquely creative talent of drawing and pattern making with her partner, Robert’s printing skills.
Today Wallpaper Printworks produces wallpaper for some of Britain’s most talented designers. In addition, Robert and his brother, Nigel are in the final stages of completing the first of two 32 metre hand print tables which will be used to hand-print fabric. This service will be available to our customers end of May.
