About us

How it started

Laura Ashley is one of the world’s best-loved fashion and home furnishings companies in the world. In the early 1950s, enthused by an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Laura and Bernard Ashley set up a homemade printing press on their kitchen table and started to print simple monoprint patterns for neck scarves, tablemats, napkins and tea towels. The products proved to be so popular that within a short space of time they were selling to the biggest retailers in the UK, and the rest is history. Laura Ashley became renowned for its abundance of small-scale prints, particularly for dress fabrics and home textiles. By 1975 the Company had 40 shops in the UK and abroad.
