Mr Wingate Cushions, Textiles and Wallpaper

Textile graduate Sam Wingate is the eponymous owner of Mr Wingate. He originally set up the brand in 2006 selling his t-shirt collection from a market stall on Brick Lane. The later shop he established in Columbia Road has now gone but the Mr Wingate collection has expanded to include a range of homewares, all of which are still hand printed in Sam's studio in Hackney, East London.

He does a fantastic line in wallpaper and I adore his hand printed cushions depicting scenes of famous London pubs and cult London landmarks like the Trellick Tower and  Keeling House in Bethnal Green.

To think Sam was determined to become an architect before he discovered his passion for textiles on an art foundation course. The East London art scene is all the better for it.
