Featured as one of the Sunday Times Top 30 Fabric & Wallpaper designers, Sian Elin is a designer brand selling pattern-led and colourful homewares & stationery.
What We Do
Inspired by the enduring aesthetic of Scandinavian design, Sian Elin creates lively hand-drawn prints that balance bold graphic line with a fresh and welcoming colour palette. We create designs that offer the comfort, style, and emotional appeal synonymous with a modern lifestyle.
Our collections have brought a mid-century modern Scandinavian perspective to ceramics, tiles, and architecture from across the globe – from the Eastern and Southern shores of the Mediterranean to the mountains of Peru.
All of our prints are hand-drawn and painted in the signature Sian Elin markings to create a unique and recognizable brand.
Making Our Products
Everything at Sian Elin is printed and made in the UK. Our fabrics are expertly digitally printed at an 80 year old industry leading factory in the North of England. Our wallpaper is printed in the North of England using eco-friendly water-based inks, resulting in the highest quality paper with exceptional colour reproduction. Lampshades are made in England, and our cushions are hand-made in our studio in Wales.
Who We Are
Sian Elin Thomas is the head designer and founder of Sian Elin. Previously working as a children's book designer at a major publishing company, Sian draws on her graphic design background to produce designs reflecting her own unique hand-drawn illustration style. Sian now works with a small team in her studio based in Cardiff.
What People Are Saying
"I am delighted with the large Agra lampshade from Sian Elin. It's of a high quality and looks perfect in my spare bedroom which is painted in Farrow and Ball's Dix Blue - not an easy colour to accessorize! All aspects of customer service; subscribing to emails, website, payment and delivery at Sian Elin were brilliant. Thanks Sian!"
