Korla sells original and evocative printed interiors textiles and home accessories. The textile and design house was created in 2011 with head office is in London and distribution agents in America, Australia, Ireland and Canada. Korla was formed to offer a new aesthetic of high design at an approachable price. Bold colours, iconic motifs and strong patterns are coordinated across collections to give customers the ability and courage to mix, match and play with various prints to reflect their personality and taste.
Jane Bonsor is the founder and Creative Director of Korla. After seven years building up her own fashion label Pocket Venus (and having three chirldren) Jane moved into the world of interiors in the summer of 2011. Jane's contempory heritage taste is reflected in the Korla collections. Describing her style Jane explains 'I'm drawn to antique prints and weaves so I try to re-interpret these into contemporary designs for Korla. I suppose our prints are an eclectic mix of geometrics!'. Her favourite print is the Alana design 'I'm really happy with our Pink and Charcoal Leina and Alana, it's feminine without being girly. I've mixed the pinks with greys and so it has an earthy edge.'
Juliet Haines is the Sales and Marketing Director and has been with Korla practically since the start. Jules discribes her role as her 'ideal job' combing her passion for textiles and interiors with over ten years of experience in marketing. Her favourite print is Inkat Ink Blue 'My sitting room curtains are Inkat Ink Blue and every night I draw them closed and it looks like a huge piece of art across the window, I love it!'
Emma Saunders started in 2014 and is our Brand and Marketing Manager.
