*Ehrman Tapestry: For over 40 years Ehrman Tapestry has commissioned some of the world’s leading textile designers. The business began in 1978 and has remained a family affair. Starting as a craft store on London’s Fulham Road in Chelsea, Ehrman showcased the work of graduates from the Royal College of Art and Central St Martins in particular. One of that original group, the American Kaffe Fassett, suggested they produce needlepoint kits and 40 years later Kaffe remains one of Ehrman’s most important and prolific designers. Knitting kits, wallpapers and fabrics followed but needlepoint kits remained the core. Setting up their own business in America in 1996 the company decided to focus exclusively on this subject. Ehrman kits are now sold in countries around the world.
