Discover the world of Iona Crawford

Delicate, expressive & curious

Inspired by nature’s vast beauty, artisanal British cloth and exquisite craftsmanship, artist and designer Iona Crawford combines her passions for fine art and design to create a timeless yet directional aesthetic.

An organic extension of Iona’s upbringing on a farm in rural Stirlingshire. Each painterly print is derived from an original artwork, conjured up on location and subsequently translated within her townhouse Atelier in Glasgow’s leafy west end. This direct translation from concept to cloth, wall-covering and furnishing ensures the expressive style and depth of character is vivid.

Whilst Iona’s painterly prints are directional and cement a unique design identity, a harmonious balance is struck between her vibrant, often satirical use of print and their pairing with rich and tonal fabrics.

They consist of earthy and tonal fabrics of Scottish origin including cashmere, linen and leather, as well as silks printed with Iona’s painterly artwork. The combination and contrast of each element results in distinctive, innovative collections which lend themselves to a plethora of interior spaces.

Constant Curiosity

Uniquely mood-enhancing collections for commercial and residential interiors


Iona’s sources of inspiration are vast but all stem from growing up in the vast Scottish lands and all they have to offer. From organic patterns, textures and tones in landscape to birdlife, naturally occurring mineral formations and coexisting species. Nature is the resounding source throughout the collections and conjured up by a childhood spent roaming and exploring the countryside that surrounds her family farm in beautiful Stirlingshire.

British made

Iona Crawford is a champion of British manufacturing with her mills and manufacturing parters within a very close proximity. In here own words “We are very fortunate in our modestly sized country. It makes my heart sing that I can hop on a train/plane or jump in the car to stand shoulder to shoulder with my mills and manufacturing partners within a few short hours, or less.”

It is not only the distance that is a key factor but the design heritage held by Great Britain is both profound and exceptional and the technology capabilities ensure cutting edge innovation.

Glasgow design practice
