The Pattern Cloud lets buyers see realistic final print outcomes for men, women and kids’ collections

A website designed as a virtual buying and selling forum for premium fabrics could "revolutionise" traditional industry buying habits, its founders have said, by giving buyers access to new and relevant designs daily. 

The Pattern Cloud is an online marketplace for print and pattern, for fashion and textile buyers worldwide. The platform, founded by six of the textile world's leading design companies – Amanda Kelly, Bay & Brown, Gather No Moss, Owens & Kim, Peagreen, and Whiston & Wright – features the latest designs from a large community of textile studios.

"We have joined forces to create a seamless storefront to support and enhance the everyday working life of buyers," explains founder Tracey Brown of Bay & Brown. "Members will discover up-to-the-minute cutting edge trends alongside fresh and original ways with time honoured classics."

Pattern Cloud gives customers the opportunity to shop by studio, gender, season or theme. Using an interactive pinboard, buyers can save and review their favourite patterns within design teams.

Photographed garments also show realistic final print outcomes for men, women and kids collections.
