Some lovely words about our Mid Century 50s fabrics and homewares from our customers all around the world.

I was thrilled when I discovered 20th Century Cloth.

As a lover of mid-century furniture and mid-century design, especially fabrics, it was a joy to discover Helen and her designs. I am an upholsterer with a passion for fabrics which I try and pass on to all my clients. I had a brief from a client who wanted fabrics with a mid-century design so when I found 20th Century Cloth it filled all my needs and dreams and those of my client! I have also used Helen’s fabric on a project of my own and found the cloth excellent to work with and of great quality. I can’t recommend Helen and her fabulous designs enough!

This fabric is absolutely beautiful!!

It is of such high quality. The pattern is fantastic for retro lovers like myself. Helen was such a pleasure to work with! I can’t wait for my Mom to begin sewing my curtains.

The coaster set I ordered is the perfect accompaniment to our 1950s dining table. I would definitely recommend these products, high quality and and great designs too!

Shopping from Helen is a ten star experience.

I’m a returning customer because I adore the beautiful fabrics with the most authentic atomic patterns. I have been making curtains and pillows from the fabrics and I have also bought ready-made pillowcases and toiletry bags. The quality is outstanding. The maker herself is very friendly and service minded. Everything I have bought has been delivered on time and as described – and she has even enclosed a gift. I couldn’t have been happier.

I love everything about 20th Century Cloth.

The designs, the products, their authenticity, their quality, and the integrity behind their creation. Even better, they’re designed and made in the UK. I’ve been waiting for years for mid-century modern products such as these to come along. They are the best!

Beautiful fabric can’t wait to use it. Thanks so much Helen, I received this last week, it is fantastic, love the print!

Alex – Penarth, UK

Really, really pleased with the design …

and the quality of the fabric it is printed on. We have made curtains and cushions for our bedroom out of it and it looks fantastic. Also love the fact it’s made in the UK. We will be repeat customers! Cheers.

Salon Bonbon – Heerlen, Netherlands

I have just bought some cushions…

and lampshades and am absolutely thrilled with them. It’s so difficult to find well made, retro furnishings but Helen’s work is original and of the highest quality. She’s great at communicating and kept me updated on estimated delivery of the made-to-order items. Am sure I’ll be buying more! Thanks, Helen.

Absolutely gorgeous face masks, they fit super well and I get complimented on them every time I wear one out!

I purchased two sets of placements..

from Helen and they’re just perfect and everything we wanted. She communicates wonderfully, we had some delays, and was wonderful to work with. We will certainly continue to purchase beautiful items with mid century prints!!!!

Thank you for these beautiful coasters and mat. The December pandemic mail between England and Albuquerque was a bit rough but we worked it out! I highly recommend this store and I will purchase from it again.

Seller very receptive and helpful, will be back!

Donna – London, UK

Fantastic retro designs on place mats and coasters that we initially bought as a Christmas present, but liked them so much we kept them for ourselves!
A huge range of designs and all from a British company.

Geoff – London, UK

Love Helen’s retro-inspired designs!

Her bold Ventura fabric makes a fabulous statement feature as a rollerblind in our bathroom, and her Sedona lampshade is the perfect complement to the wooden table lamp base my husband made at school in 1964! What’s more, Helen is super-friendly, helpful and careful to make sure everything is correct, especially measurements. Looking forward to treating ourselves to more of her creations in future and recommending her to friends & family. Thank you, Helen!

Michelle – London, UK

I’m fond of a midcentury pattern…

and started by getting the coasters and tea towels before picking up a face mask, hand mirror and cushions (all in the same pattern, matchy matchy!). All products are exceptionally well made and I love the selection of items available. Delivery is quick too.
