Corita Rose is a textile design company founded in 2009 by artist and designer Caroline Ritchie and her husband Joshua
Having grown up in London, Caroline spent years travelling, raising a family and teaching art to young children. Now based in Dorset, Caroline’s love of color and imagery led to the foundation of her company Corita Rose, named in part after Sister Corita Kent, a dynamic artist and screen printer working in 1950s Los Angeles.
Caroline uses iconic imagery, pattern, color, and changes of scale to create designs that echo the past and look to the future, creating rich fabrics with strong imagery and rich, vivid colors for use in interiors and accessories. Caroline’s inspiration comes from different cultures and eras, from tribal and folk art, to heraldry and medieval designs.
Corita Rose creates luxurious and vibrant fabrics. Designs vary from traditional pattern repeats to small and large-scale individually designed panels of fabric for use in our bespoke furnishing range, upholstered furniture, and curtains. Much of our design is bespoke and we work on both large projects and small commissions. We are able to design and produce exclusive and unique designs for customers.
Working with our fabrics we have an ever-expanding range of fashion and interior accessories to complement our designs. We choose products that inspire us, fusing them with our designs to create unique, integrated design pieces. Each season we produce a new range made here in the UK, supporting and working with British manufacturers.
