J. Robert Scott is proud to introduce Victoria Bain Embroidered Textiles in their showrooms in the US and UK. This partnership will provide a totally customizable option to clients wishing to embellish or personalize the textiles in their interior environments.

Since 1994, under the direction of owner, founder Victoria Bain, the company has mastered the use of innovative embroidery in patterns that are both formal, and classical. The patterns all originate in a hand drawing and then with a mix of either hand or machine embroidery they are brought to life. “I have always been drawn to the capability of stitch, be that hand or machine work, and the rich variety of texture and pattern that it can create.” says Bain “A stitch for me is a means of expressing an original idea in a very personal way.”

“The addition of embroideries to the luxury items we offer is a great opportunity for those clients looking for a bespoke design element.” explains Richard Chilcott, CEO of J. Robert Scott. Ms. Bain’s work can be requested on many of the textile qualities offered through J. Robert Scott showrooms including selections of JRS Superkidskin™ and cow hide. Victoria Bain Embroidered Textiles have been incorporated into residential, yacht, and hospitality settings.

ABOUT VICTORIA BAIN EMBROIDERED TEXTILES

Victoria Bain Embroidered Textiles is a luxury design studio producing exquisitely embroidered fabrics for the home. With a Couture Parisian background, and inspired by the Atelier of Lesage, one of the greatest embroiderers of our time, Victoria established her Company in 1994. The Studio is based in Highgate in North London.

Victoria’s unparalleled knowledge of embroidery stitch and her attention to detail has brought her high acclaim and her work features in high end residential projects to luxury property developments around the world. Her work also covers luxury and boutique hotels, working with hotel groups such as the Four Seasons, The Sandy Lane, Barbados, Rocco Forte Hotels, and The Dorchester, amongst others.

The Inspiration behind Victoria’s designs stem from her passion for art history. British archives, and stately homes, so rich in design inspiration, often shape her starting point. Each design is meticulously researched and techniqued. All designs are initially hand drawn as Victoria is ‘a great believer in the hand-touch over mechanical CAD touch’, it allows for an organic rhythm that at times she feels is unattainable through computer software. That saying for the machine worked embroidery the artwork is then scanned in and worked over stitch wise with computer software but only in order to make sure that every stitch is considered and blended correctly, she is keen that the finished product will almost pass for hand-work. Hand work is created by highly skilled Sari workers in Southern India. Each of her Collections are produced by teams that are able to technically achieve the standards and to push the boundaries dictated by Victoria. The ‘off the peg’ designs are created by a team in Europe, with the ‘made to measure’ offer, produced in the UK for fast turnaround and outstanding quality control.

Superyacht designers are attracted to the ‘couture arm’ of the Company and Victoria regularly creates custom items for both upholstery and curtaining.

Beauty and a beautiful home are central to the Company’s philosophy. The Company believes that ‘beauty is found in the detail’.
