Hilda Living produces bespoke, embroidered home accessories. Founded and directed by British Textile Designer, Rebecca Williams, all the work is original and influenced by Rebecca’s passion for colour, pattern and decoration. Hilda Living’s collections of exclusive high end products are constantly growing into new ideas for your interior. These products are available to purchase through the online shop.
Hilda Living also offers a personal service working with you or your interior designer; all the designs are bespoke and can be modified in scale, style and colour depending on your individual requirements. Whether you’re looking for a few choice cushions to accentuate your current furnishings or a whole new embroidery design to match your new scheme, Hilda Living can work with you to provide it.
Rebecca named the business after her Grandmother, Hilda Williams, who was always trying something new when it came to embroidery and craft. Hilda’s work was exquisite, with immense attention to detail in each project and textile venture she undertook. She found great rest and contentment through this pastime, as she was also caring full time for Rebecca’s Grandfather, who suffered with MS. After Hilda died, Rebecca remembers visiting a Royal School of Needlework exhibition at Hampton Court Palace when she was a little girl to see her Grandmother’s work on show.
“It seems completely right and natural to keep her memory at the centre of what I do because Hilda was such a huge source of inspiration! I speak on behalf of so many of us in our family when I say this. She stands for the ethos of this brand: to carry out the job with care and attention to detail and to create unique embroidered products for the home that will be kept, treasured and enjoyed.”
Rebecca continued to develop her own creative practice through her studies, eventually graduating from University College Falmouth in 2008 with a degree in Textile Design BA (Hons).
Rebecca remained in Cornwall developing her practice and founded Hilda Living in 2013.
