Since autumn 2019 Elizabeth Ockford has been designing and manufacturing wallpapers under her own brand. The Company digitally prints new collections to order, using eco-friendly water-based inks on high quality substrates from FSC-certified forests.
After many years of working for some of the biggest names in the wallpaper design and print industry, Elizabeth Ockford has formed a high-end interiors brand under her own name.
This newly established brand offers an array of services from designing, printing and selling own brand wallcoverings; to offering a variety of bespoke wallpaper design and print services to trade, all whilst taking strong consideration into their environmental impact.
In March 2020 Elizabeth Ockford launched their debut collection, The Islands. The collection features conversational designs including whales, lobsters, butterflies, coral, and tropical birds as well as intricate Eastern scenes. To complement these designs, they have created a number of sophisticated tonal wallcoverings with subtle raffia textures and geometric motifs reminiscent of exotic woven silks.
Alongside producing their debut collection, Elizabeth Ockford’s dedicated design team can lead the customer through the process of creating their own wallpaper or modifying an existing digital design from the Elizabeth Ockford’s archive – from an initial concept through to creating a final design with maximum effect. With a strong understanding of colour and meeting strict requirements, the design team can create a tailor-made colour scheme to suit the customer’s project and achieve the perfect solution.
The company have a serious outlook when it comes to reducing their carbon footprint. Alongside the day-to-day actions of switching off lights, computers and recycling their rubbish, the company also use paper from only FSC-certified sources, eco-friendly water-based inks for their printing and, most importantly, they have worked extensively to create packaging – for their debut collection – which is biodegradable and recyclable.
In addition to this, the company have partnered with an inspiring global reforestation initiative, One Tree Planted. As part of their one for one model, Elizabeth Ockford Ltd have pledged to contribute to a tree being planted for every roll sold from The Islands collection.
