Rapture and Wright | WAM CAST #0001

In Conversation with Rapture and Wright in their workshop in Gloucestershire.

We took a trip to visit Peter and Rebecca at their home and workshop to have a long-form conversation about their business and what it's like to be a small business.

Rapture and Wright : Rapture & Wright was started by Peter Thwaites and Rebecca Aird in 2004. She, a successful Graphic Designer, wanted a change from creating packaging for sweets and engine oil. He, an illustrator, had been working around the world for interior designers, creating exotic murals and wall finishes.

Artisans at heart, together they dreamed of turning their brimming portfolio of patterns, designed over the years, into a collection of fabrics and wallpapers. Confident that they could save the dwindling British textile industry by themselves, they built a hand printing table in a leaky barn and sought out the best suppliers across the British Isles.

This video podcast was filmed in their workspace on a normal work day and so you will hear Rebecca and their small team working in the background whilst Peter shares their journey with us
