H. Richards & Co
I am a Melbourne based textile artist who designs and handcrafts contemporary quilts and homewares. My designs are simple and stylish, made to compliment modern homes and lives.
I draw on traditional quilting and patchwork craft with the eye of a contemporary artist. Each piece is an original work using natural materials, hand-printed fabrics, patchwork appliqué and intricate quilting methods to create textiles that are at once practical, beautiful and beguiling.
From rock pools in the endless coastline to the beautiful sparse vegetation of the Top End, my work reflects the Australian landscape in its many guises. My quilts have found loving owners in beautiful homes in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth as well as in the USA, England, Malaysia and the Philippines.
My quilts are made for sensitive modern souls: to be dreamt under, to bring joy to the eyes and comfort to the body, and to become part of a beautiful life.
