Keelergordon creates original textiles and design concepts for the fashion industry. Specialising in womenswear, junior, swim and reworked vintage prints and embroidery concepts. Working with cutting edge digital production and the artisan art of screen-printing we produce beautiful things. When designing, we don’t just show print and pattern- we think about how the textile can be worn and fully merchandise each line. Our designs are cut to shape and styled with the trims and finishes that make them unique.
Here we celebrate passion and design with our aspirational and limited edition home collections. Taking the best British creative talent, we design and produce stylish furniture, lighting and accessories for the home. Co-founder, Jessica Lozano says; “Our mission is to promote the talent of Great Britain as well as creating sustainable business for everyone we work with. Each new collection encapsulates beauty and uniqueness as well as forming part of a limited edition collection being made. I have always been excited by new talent and love the fact that we are creating really special home furnishings which are constantly changing with new products coming out throughout the whole year.” The founders, Jessica & Lorenzo Lozano have more than 25 years between them in this industry both in sales and working as interior designers having an impressive portfolio of projects both in the UK and abroad. They understand what works in an interior and their design experience means they can bring the latest trends to your home. They also offer an interior design service across the UK working with a trusted team of people to take a project from concept to its final stages.
