Camira launches New Heritage, a collection of designs from our archives

Back to News & Events

To celebrate our 200-year anniversary in transport textiles, we have released New Heritage - an exclusive collection of 20 designs from our archives, available in an array of wire-woven and moquette fabrics.

Originally produced by Holdsworth, a company founded in 1822 and acquired by Camira in 2007, the New Heritage range features designs from decades past, given a contemporary twist through new colourways reflective of today’s trends.

A homage to our rich heritage in transport textiles.

Featuring patterns from the 1930s through to the 1980s, the archive edit includes well-known ranges, such as the distinctive Waves & Swirls first released in 1982, alongside lesser-known gems like the geometric Grid, originally launched in 1938. Selected and recoloured by Camira in shades including cyan, lime and burgundy, the collection has been carefully developed to complement modern transport interiors, while paying homage to our rich heritage.

"Each design tells a story and holds a memory." Sarah Mallinson, Senior Transport Designer

Commenting on the launch of the collection, Sarah Mallinson, Senior Transport Designer, said, “New Heritage has been such a delight to work on – our archives are filled with beautiful designs, each one of which tells a story and holds a memory, and to be able to give just a few of these patterns a new lease of life, to be enjoyed all over again, is such a great way to celebrate 200 years.”

New Heritage is now available to order globally.
