About Laura Ashley

Inspired by a display of traditional Victorian fabric at the Victoria Albert Museum in London, Laura and Bernard Ashley began printing textiles on their kitchen table in 1953. The prints, in the form of headscarves, were an instant success and Laura Ashley was on its way to becoming an international company with a brand recognized and loved around the globe.

Over the years, Laura Ashley expanded its original line to include apparel, home furnishings, accessories, and fragrance becoming the original lifestyle brand. Laura Ashley is known as the quintessential English brand, synonymous with quality, creativity, and individuality- a mark of timeless, relaxed living.

Today, Laura Ashley is focused on becoming the ultimate destination brand for home products, women's wear and children's wear. Drawing on an over 50-year heritage, Laura Ashley collections are made relevant with a refreshed colour pallet and new twists on traditional styles. Strengthened by a strategic licensing operation in the U.S., and a global retail presence that includes over 500 stores, Laura Ashley has remained a brand that continues to be loved by sophisticated women around the world.
