Clarence House

Clarence House was founded by Robin Roberts in 1961 and has since become one of the world's most renowned textile resources. To celebrate its fiftieth anniversary, CLARENCE HOUSE: The Art of the Textile was published to offer readers a look inside the creative process and evolution of the brand.

CLARENCE HOUSE: The Art of the Textile was written by Kazumi Toshida, the Design Director for Clarence House since 1981 and Sabine Rothman, the Style Director of House Beautiful; it was photographed by François Halard. It was published by Rizzoli New York in October 2011.
