About the Author
Julius Arthur is a designer and maker residing in Sussex, England, after growing up in his home county of Cornwall. Graduating with a masters in fashion design, Julius's focus soon turned to contemporary craft practice and textile design. With a close connection to his rural upbringing and the memories of making things with his parents at a young age, Julius looked to textiles, interiors and traditional crafts as a way to experiment and design with different ways of working. In 2016 Julius launched House of Quinn, a design studio with a considered approach to making handmade objects for living spaces. Items that are re?ective of our daily rituals and become part of personal collections and narratives. Working with renewed and consciously sourced textiles, House of Quinn quilt collections center on using traditional (quilting and appliqué) techniques to create contemporary objects with a sense of place and function. After launching in 2016 with the ?rst quilted textiles collection 'Renewed', House of Quinn has become synonymous for its signature hand-made quilts, soft furnishings and interior products. This is his first book.
