Heritage outerwear brand Barbour has partnered with fabrics printer Walker Greenbank, which will supply William Morris prints for trims and linings on Barbour products.
Barbour will also receive material for a new handbag range from Walker Greenbank, according to The Independent. The printer will use designs from its Morris & Co archive, with the fabrics to be made at Walker Greenbank’s factory in Lancaster and will be available from August.
Barbour has been upping its collaborations recently. In February the heritage brand announced teaming up with Paul Smith to produce a ‘small, concept-based’ autumn 12 collection that will launch in September. The brand also collaborated with premium British brand Alice Temperley on a womenswear range for autumn 11.
