Our pieces are future heirlooms. Each item is handmade from fine fabrics using couture sewing methods, and Rose hand-paints unique print designs that make the garments works of wearable art.
Garment shapes are all designed to be elegant and flattering, with one of our highest priorities in the design development stage being comfort.
Our goal is to make our customers feel so wonderful wearing items of such luxurious high quality, with such beautiful colours and patterns, that they will treasure and pass them on to their descendants.
All our shapes are exclusive to Rose Fulbright, and many are inspired by vintage loungewear pieces that Rose sources and researches on her travels.

We source the silk we use to make our Graphite pieces from a highly respected London company who have been trading silk since the early 1900s. Their silk is produced all over the world from ethically sound factories with the best technical skills in silk weaving.
The silk that we use at Rose Fulbright for the Graphite collection is the heaviest stretch crepe backed satin available, at 95gsm (grams per square metre). This gives the silk a luxurious, heavy liquid feel, which is quite cool to the touch.
In order to provide an everyday alternative to silk lingerie items, we designed some pieces in end-of-line Italian polyester satin. This fabric would otherwise go to landfill, but Rose found it far too beautiful to leave behind!
Our lingerie pieces are all self-lined, so the satin side of the fabric shows both on the outside providing glamour and sophistication as well as on the inside, against the body. This makes for soft, sensuous and supportive garments, that provide luxurious comfort at the same time as looking beautiful.
The silks used in our loungewear collections come from two different sources.
For our exclusive Rose Fulbright prints, we work with a family printer based in Suzhou, China, where the finest silks have been woven for nearly 4,000 years. The printers use ecologically safe certified inks, and the finest woven silk satins and chiffons. The patterns arrive beautifully coloured and printed, on heavy silk satin.
The beautiful plain colours that we pair our prints with are from an established British silk supplier who ensure transparency in their supply chain.
Organic Cotton Silk
We use lightweight organic cotton silk for our beachwear collections. This fabric was chosen for its natural fibres, and performance- it keeps the wearer cool in the heat, dries out quickly, and is machine-washable.
Tips for washing silk
Silk garments must not be machine washed. Machine washing will break down the delicate silk fibres, and may dull the satin sheen of your garment. It will also degrade the silk slowly, meaning your items will not last.
You may hand wash your items very carefully in lukewarm water with mild detergent, for no longer than a few minutes.
Dry cleaning will keep the silk in perfect condition. We recommend that our customers look into green dry cleaners or organic dry cleaning services that use non-toxic methods such as liquid CO2 or silicone based solvents. Click here to find out more about green dry-cleaning.
As with all fine fabrics, never use chlorine bleach on silk, as it will erode the fiber and discolour the fabric.
After hand washing, hang the garment to dry, out of direct sunlight.

Wrinkle removal tips
Silk is wonderful to travel with, as it is light and packs up very small.
Most wrinkles in silk can be removed by hanging the garment in the bathroom during your shower. The steam will remove the wrinkles for you.
When ironing silk, make sure the iron is on the cool 'silk' setting.
Too much heat can dull, pucker, or burn silk fabric
Do not wet locally as this may cause rings
Garment care is an important aspect of living sustainably. The more high quality garments we own, the more we can do to look after them properly, and minimise waste.
