Botanica Trading was launched in 2015. Offering a stunning range of textiles, Debby Tenquist has designed fabrics that are inspired by her love of the natural world, botanical art and of all things from the near, middle and Far East.


Her studies in London at the Victoria & Albert and the British Museum covered garden design, architecture & decorative arts from the 15th Century to the modern day in Europe, the Middle East and America. Latterly she studied the history of Japanese and Korean design. She worked for Sotheby’s auctioneers in South Africa and Australia for 12 years, specialising in Oriental and European decorative arts which has resulted in her great interest in all things botanical and textile design. The principles of good design, proportion, the language of colour and a variety of styles have informed her aesthetic vocabulary. Her love of research and exotic destinations continually informs her creative design process.

All patterns below are available on an oyster linen and on a natural linen
