Dalliance and Noble

About Us

Dalliance and Noble launched in 2017 by British textile designer James Skinner who specialises in meticulously hand drawn designs which are digitally printed onto the finest silks to produce accessories for both fashion and interiors. All products are manufactured in Britain.

Each design is truly original and unique with an intense level of detail that is heavily influenced by botanical illustrations, flora and fauna.  Unlike many scarves, James’ designs rarely contain pattern repeats; each scarf has an individual design which changes depending on how the wearer choses to position it.

James studied at Falmouth University where he gained a degree in Textile Design with first class honours.  On graduating in 2014, he was selected for the prestigious Texprint programme and exhibited his work in London and traded in Paris.  Here he was selected for the ComOn programme which took him to Italy where he designed for a textile mill in Como.

Since then he has undertaken numerous worldwide freelance contracts and collaborations but it has always been his ambition to have his own lifestyle label and in 2017 the ‘new generation’ brand, Dalliance and Noble was born. 

All James’ creations are timeless and Dalliance & Noble hope you treasure and enjoy them for many years.
