Betty Boyns Country & Vintage Designs

 
 
Betty Boyns have added to their gorgeous ‘Country Girl’ collection with a new design ‘Goosie Goosie’ and complimentary spotted fabric in Stone and Duck Egg Blue.
‘I’ve always adored Geese, they’re so bossy, bold and noisy. My aunt had a trio called Huey, Dewey and Louie, she would have to protect herself with a flat sheet of metal that she would shield them off whenever she put out the washing, ' says Betty Boyns designer Paula Nicholls.



The soft muted greys and blues work beautifully with the décor of country kitchens or French interiors. Printed in the UK on 100% cotton ‘Goosie Goosie’ is available in fabric, oilcloth, aprons, tea towels, tea cosies and oven gloves.‘The ‘Country Girl’ collection has been created to slip seamlessly into your home but bringing with it a twinkle of Cornish humour and charm with colours drawn from winter mornings to summer evenings.’Betty Boyns launched their design company in January of 2011 specialising in UK made and designed fabrics, kitchen Linens and soft furnishings.

The 2013 collection ‘Country Girl’ is inspired by designer, Paula Nicholls, experience of her family’s beautifully tended gardens and small holdings in the far west of Cornwall. Using a palette of 4 colours and 3 designs she has created a unique desirable range. The collection was launched this February and we now stock some of the most prestigious outlets in the west country and wider UK. A new design ‘Goosie Goosie’ and complimentary spots is launched at the end of April 2013.

Betty Boyns fabrics are printed in Manchester and are available as fabric and oilcloth by the metre, and also as charming readymade cushion covers, tea cosies, aprons, tablecloths, napkins and tea towels.


 
Based in the fishing village of Newlyn, in the far west of Cornwall, Betty Boyns produces beautiful, Country and vintage inspired fabrics, cushions, aprons, table linens, wrapping paper and greetings cards.
 
Everything they produce is sourced, printed and manufactured in the UK and Cornwall.
 
                               Betty Boyns designer, Paula Nicholls, studied art at Falmouth School of Art, then moved to Bristol to work first as a journalist, then an events organiser. Eventually, however, she could no longer resist returning to Cornwall and, ‘determined to do something arty’, she started a card company, Art Cards Cornwall, featuring paintings by local artists. It was an immediate success, and Paula branched first into prints and then, spotting a gap in the market for vintage-style wrapping paper and fabric, set up Betty Boyns – named after her mother.
 
In doing so she is following a family tradition in the fabric industry – her father, uncle and grandfather all worked for the renowned Crysede Textiles (later Cresta Silks) who supplied Libertys, in St Ives in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties. Betty Boyns launched in 2009 and the first shop, in St Ives opened in 2010.
