About Us

Newton Paisley creates detailed fabrics and wallpapers, all designed and hand-drawn by conservation biologist and founder, Susy Paisley. Each design tells stories of endangered species and contributes toward the preservation of critical wild habitats. For every metre of fabric sold, 100m2 of wild habitat is preserved through a collaboration with World Land Trust. Since its founding in 2016, sustainability and the conservation of nature has been central to the Newton Paisley ethos.

How would you describe your style?

"Newton Paisley designs work well with a lot of different traditional and contemporary styles, but essentially it is biophilic - celebrating nature and connecting people to the world outside."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"Newton Paisley recently completed a bespoke commission for the Alladale Wilderness Reserve in the Scottish Highlands, recently recognised as Europe’s most eco-friendly hotel by the Boutique Hotel Awards. The resultant scenic wallpaper and textile design centres around the reforestation of Caledonian pines, and features endangered species such as white-tailed eagles, pearl-bordered fritillaries, black grouse and freshwater pearl mussels. It also features the iconic Scottish wildcat, which Alladale is helping to breed for release back into the highlands.

The unique service we offer is to research and present the flora and fauna that are special to a given site and create designs in celebration of those species. Always rich in biological detail and authenticity, the style of the textile or wall covering can vary according to the design brief."
