Hi, my name is Charlotte and I’m the owner and head designer at Charlotte Jade, a new luxury interiors brand which specializes in bespoke, hand drawn patterns for wallpapers, textiles and ceramic tiles.
The brand concept started when I first got into designing patterns in my final year at Camberwell College of Arts. For my final major project, I created a selection of hand drawn pattern designs which were used across a variety of interiors, fashion garments and stationery items. This is where my love for patterns all started!
After finishing university in 2014, I began creating a repertoire of print designs, gaining inspiration from natural forms such as animals, plants, flowers and foliage along with natural textures and geometric shapes. Going by the name of ‘Charlotte Jade’, I became a freelance print designer and illustrator and I was commissioned by a variety of clients, such as, Universal Record Label, Topshop and Fay Weldon.
My sister, Kate and I had always dreamed of working together and building a brand, so in November last year we decided to do just that. We have a combined passion for design and the worlds of interiors and fashion, so we decided to pool our creativity and start our own interiors brand. Kate has worked as a very successful fashion buyer for around five years, bringing a wealth of creative direction and commercial drive to the business. We work together to brainstorm ideas for new designs and bounce ideas off each other. I then take these ideas and start designing. I primarily work in pencil and paint to create our hand drawn patterns, capturing details and delicate textures, in a design style which has become the signature of Charlotte Jade.

We produce wallpapers, textiles, cushions, upholstery fabrics and ceramic tiles, each printed with our hand drawn patterns. We digitally print all our products within the United Kingdom, which we feel is an important and key heritage to our brand.

Due to the nature of our hand drawn patterns, we offer a bespoke design service where we can work with clients to create completely bespoke, unique patterns specifically tailored to individual projects and developments. Along with this, colours and details are interchangeable within our existing patterns and therefore can be altered to match clients’ requirements. This bespoke service brings a unique quality to our business and allows us to work on a personal level with our clients to really capture the design they are looking for.
Our designs have been used internationally within both residential and commercial properties. Our commissions to-date include print designs for hotel interiors and residential housing companies, bespoke branded wallpaper and custom designed textiles for clients based both within the UK and abroad.
The Charlotte Jade presence is growing and our family run business ethic is evident. Exciting and creative, we have built our business on quality and reliability, which is evident in our products and our personal relationship with each individual client.
We currently have our own online shop and our products are also stocked by a number of online retailers such as Amara, Beut and Rose & Grey.
