Textile Candy started in 2012 as a blog written by Rebecca Lois Burns documenting print trends on the runway and showcasing beautiful textile prints/inspirational images- eye candy for fashion and textile lovers.
 
Upon graduating with a printed textiles degree from Manchester School of Art, Rebecca began freelancing for a Glasgow based design studio while also working night shifts at a textiles factory as a 'quality inspector’ for House of Hackney, Ralph Lauren Home and Liberty art prints. Freelancer by day, factory worker by night.
 
Never wavering in her goals the next step was the big city. In 2013 Rebecca moved from Lancaster to London for a print design position at a knitwear supplier. Creating womenswear prints for knitted garments at Marks&Spencers, F&F at Tesco, George at ASDA, Tu at Sainsburys, Dorothy Perkins and Littlewoods.
 
After a year and half Rebecca was ready for a new challenge and moved to Germany to work for a large European retailer, C&A. There she began creating prints for teen girls brand Clockhouse. After 6 months Rebecca was offered the opportunity to change departments moving to the menswear headquarters located in Brussels, Belgium.
 
From her attic apartment located in the centre of the European capital, Rebecca is now focussing on turning Textile Candy into a brand. Combining the 3 areas she is most passionate about: Print design, Illustration and Trend forecasting.
 
The Textile Candy ethos is to provide customers with intricate, timeless prints and illustrations aesthetically tailored to meet their needs. All Textile Candy artworks are hand drawn and post-digitally manipulated, each taking days to produce. A range of illustrated styles are available; from fine patterned line work to photorealist sketches. Designs are on a commission basis and currently printed onto a range of products: Phone/iPod cases, canvasses, stationary, clutch bags and cushions... this product range will expand as the brand grows.
