Bethan Gray’s ancestors journeyed across continents - Bethan has since visited many of the places they passed through, inspired by a love of travel, art and culture. Today, her mission is to bring contemporary relevance to cultural narratives and traditional crafts. This approach, paired with her instinctive use of natural materials, a sensitive colour palette and bold graphic pattern, has resulted in Elle Decoration naming her ‘Best British Designer.’ Today her collections are sold, written about and exhibited all over the world.
