Rebecca Heane and Allison Hughes met after finding themselves neighbours in the quaint fishing village of Flushing. After meeting they quickly realised that they shared many interests and that they both had a strong aesthetic vision of how Cornwall should be represented. This united vision, along with their mutual passion for design, led to the pair using their wealth of experience to create Cream Cornwall.
This dynamic duo has over 45 years of experience between them in the textile and interiors industry, and it is their unique expertise that has helped them to create aesthetically pleasing designs, which are centred upon traditional craftsmanship. The pair strongly believe in creativity, maintaining a unique style and commitment to quality.
Rebecca started her career in the textile industry and was quick to push the boundaries of her materials in order to create bespoke fabrics for both designers and interiors. Despite being a Cornish maid through and through, she lived in Western Australia for fourteen years, however, her longing for the moody, aqua waters of the Atlantic and the ever changing light drew her home.
Allison worked as a design consultant in London for twenty-two years, forecasting trends and colours for apparel textiles. During the many years of holidaying in Cornwall, Allison fell in love and realised that it was time for a change. She is constantly inspired by the captivating county and can’t imagine living anywhere else.
Their products showcase the many facets of Cornwall and its fascinating history. Drawing upon both landscape and legacy, Cream Cornwall conjures up images of windswept moors and maritime, cliffs and coastline, cottages and clotted cream. The Cream Cornwall range evokes emotions and memories which are harnessed within the unique colours, prints and beautiful designs.
Allison and Rebecca’s strong connection to Cornwall and what it represents is obvious, as seen through their diverse and exquisite products. Cream Cornwall reminds visitors, and even the Cornish themselves, of what it is exactly that the county symbolises and allows us all to bring the beauty of Cornwall into our homes.
Beautiful things, beautifully made.
