Matilda's Marfa Stance

The Signature Reversible Quilt & Shearling Liner

Tell us about yourself/ your background

I grew up in the English countryside the youngest of a big family so was always slightly left to my own devices and learnt to be imaginative. From as young as I can remember I was forever making things. 

After a brief stint at art college, I started working aged 18. I jumped around various publications as fashion assistant and later editor but when an opening to be assistant to Venetia Scott appeared, someone whom I had admired for many years, I jumped at the opportunity. My three years working with her across every aspect were the best training they opened my eyes to looking at things in a different way.   

I never set out to create a homeware brand, it all happened very organically. It started with my scalloped raffia lampshades that I sold to friends, and when their friends came knocking, I knew there may be a market. Very slowly, I have added new products to the line, each one designed by me collaborating with talented craftsmen utilising their particular skills.

How do you style your Marfa Stance pieces?

Coats and shoes are my armour - you can feel rough and tired and have a scruffy outfit but chuck on a coat as you leave the house and it instantly makes you look more pulled together. I love this coat as it is wearable year round by adding and removing the furry gilet liner and has deep pockets that mean you can leave your bag behind!
