About the designer

Blithfield & Co

Founded in 1997, Blithfield is a boutique British textile house, known for its beautiful printed textiles and wallpapers which are inspired by an extensive archive of documents sourced all over the world and accumulated over three decades of collecting.

Blithfield collaborated with Kit Kemp, Design Director and co-owner of Firmdale Hotels, and the late Melissa Wyndham to develop an exquisite range of cushions, exclusively for Fine Cell Work.

Together they selected Blithfield designs that would lend themselves perfectly to vibrantly stitched embellishment with embroidery and enhanced with French knots. The cushions include Circles, Oakleaves, Pineapple and Small Damask from the Peggy Angus Collection, as well as Rossmore and Stratford.


Support our work

By purchasing from Fine Cell Work, you are making social change. However, 75% of our rehabilitation programmes are funded through donations and grants. We know that transformation is possible - for our stitchers, for our communities, and for our society as a whole. Your support - through donations or by purchasing products - will help to break the devastating cycle of reoffending and repeated imprisonment.

£10 donation
Provides a prisoner with the materials for one tapestry cushion (100 hours of creative activity). 

£20 donation
Will enable us to continue providing paid, creative and productive work to even more prisoners around the UK, helping them to build a brighter future.

£50 donation
Sponsors a prisoner to train as a volunteer 'class coordinator', teaching and mentoring other prisoners.

£250 donation
Covers the volunteer costs of a stitching class in prison.

£500 donation
Pays for the training, materials and support for one prisoner for an entire year, helping them to rebuild a meaningful, independent,crime-free life.

By giving prisoners hope that transformation is truly possible, they can envision a meaningful life after release. But nobody tells the story of how Fine Cell Work has helped them better than the prisoners themselves:

“Stitching allows me to use a totally different part of my brain and personality. I can move away from the more difficult reflections and anxieties and feel creative and purposeful. This means I no longer feel that my life has come to a halt and that I am of no use to anyone else.”

I LOVE my pillows and especially love the handwork done on them. I’m a huge fan of Kit Kemp Design and love that those incarcerated are given the honor and privilege to share their talents.

I love it and it is for my daughter’s Xmas present. She bought me one a few years ago and I treasure it. I have done quite a lot of tapestry work so know the work involved and I have bought a carnation kit from you
I have already sent a card to the worker
Congratulations on all you do. Darien
