“We like to think we bring something a little different to the market,” says founder and Executive Director, Lisa Parsons. “Our difference will be reflected in our customers’ eyes by unusual fabrics that complement our core fabric ranges; all augmented by our excellent levels of customer service, market knowledge and attention to detail.”
KOTHEA’s trade customers would perceive their signature fabrics to include several ranges of velvet including the exclusive ‘cashmere silk velvet’, Silk Collections, double-width sheers, faux leather and interesting weaves for upholstery often with high Martindale ‘rub tests’ making them highly suited to both contract and residential projects.
Lisa and KOTHEA’s investors founded the company in the 1990s as a top-market fabric house based in London serving customers throughout all of Europe and The Middle East. Initially building on Lisa’s 12 highly successful years with Nobilis Fontan in Chelsea and Donghia in Chelsea Harbour, KOTHEA have since continued to develop and sell an extensive range of timeless fabrics to the top architects, interior- and yacht-designers for projects ranging from mega-yachts to boutique hotels and from luxury spas to penthouses.
KOTHEA operate on a trade-only basis and their fabrics are available to the public through interior designers and specialist interior designers. KOTHEA also supply beautiful 100% cashmere throws, hand-woven linen fabrics, finished goods and table linen.
