The award recognises the highest standards of British Design and innovation and was judged by six prominent members of the design community including Daniel Hopwood and Professor Clare Johnson.

'All Tomorrow's Futures'is a joyfully intelligent comment on our place in the world and journey to sustainability, and was specially woven and screen printed for us locally in the North of England.

Conceived in lockdown during a phone with artist Alexis Snell, the initial design was sketched out in pencil before being carved into a lino block and printed by hand.

The fabric was screen printed in three, nature-inspired colourways – Lobster Orange, Ocean Blue and Seaweed Green.
