Fabric Selector

Working at Whitemeadow allows me to work in a creative environment in an industry sector that I have always had a passion for. When I joined Whitemeadow five years ago I was completely new to the industry. My textile and design background as well as a friendly, supportive team has allowed me to sculpt the role to suit my skills. I am very lucky as my job role means that I travel to places such as London, Belgium and Italy sourcing new fabrics for all our customers, considering upcoming trends in texture and colour.
