Lead Designer, Heather Kearsley has 450 years of weaving tradition from her fraternal grandmother’s Kearsley family in Lancashire and Yorkshire and two generations of couture sewing between her mother and grandmother. Both of Wolf’s parents have been teaching Heather about sewing, fine craftsmanship, design and textiles for as long as she can remember. That education has woven itself through her entire life and brought her to found Kearsley linens 17 years ago.
“We believe that luxury linens should enhance the lives of those who are fortunate enough to enjoy them and be truly responsible to the earth and the people making them.” Heather Kearsley
