In January we launched an exclusive accessories collection, in collaboration with renowned textile designer Celia Birtwell. To help raise vital funds to help beat heartbreak forever.

Celia Birtwell is a British textile designer, who with her husband, Ossie Clark rose to fame in the 1960s. They dressed the rich and famous, from the Beatles and Rollings Stones to royalty.

Today, her designs are still worn by celebrities including Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham, Kiera Knightly and Sienna Miller to name but a few. Celia is also a muse of David Hockney and is depicted in the famous painting, "Mr & Mrs Clark and Percy."

The charming range features 12 different home and fashion accessories. The collection is available from selected BHF clothing and accessory shops, across the UK. You can also buy selected styles from our online gift shop.

The products, which showcase Celia Birtwell’s iconic floral prints, include a pom pom wash bag, a super soft velvet cushion and a blue tassel scarf. There’s also a photo frame, jewellery box, set of mugs, canvas tote bag and a selection of purses. You can even get your hands on a charming magnifying glass if you’re feeling nostalgic!

Celia kindly chose to support the BHF as her family have a personal connection to the cause. Bella Clark, her daughter-in-law and business partner, sadly lost her sister, artist Roz Cryer, to a rare congenital heart condition in 2017. The family have been strong supporters of the BHF ever since and want to help raise awareness and funds for our life saving research.

The BHF receives 100% of the profit from the sales of this collection. The proceeds will go towards much needed funds for life-saving research into heart and circulatory diseases, including conditions such as stroke, diabetes and vascular dementia.

 

Celia Birtwell, said of the collaboration:

“It has been an honour to work with the British Heart Foundation over the past few months and I am so pleased to reveal the final products. The cause is very close to my heart and I hope the collection will raise vital funds so that future families don’t have to go through the devastation caused by heart and circulatory diseases."

Allison Swaine-Hughes, Retail Director at the British Heart Foundation added:

“We are so grateful to Celia for her support in designing these beautiful accessories, which not only look great but will also help fund the BHF’s vital work. With a staggering 7 million people across the country living with heart and circulatory diseases, it’s essential that we continue to accelerate research into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat them. The support of families like Celia’s is vital in enabling us to continue this work.”


The Celia Birtwell range is available to buy in selected BHF shops nationwide. You can also buy a few selected styles from our online gift shop. Please contact your nearest BHF shop for further details.
