Welcome to Mosney Mill, a fantastic collection of country style wallpapers, fabrics, kitchenware and gifts, all manufactured right here in Britain.

Emma Sutton designs and creates a stunning range of country inspired homeware, ensuring that wherever possible, it’s made in Lancashire.

The moment Emma drove down the bumpy farm track to Mosney house, she knew the place was special. With stunning new surroundings and a newfound inspiration, Emma picked up her pencils and began to draw animals from the gorgeous scenery she was immersed in. A range of whimsical animals began to emerge, each with a story and a special place on the family’s 11 acres of land.

During the renovations of Mosney, the family uncovered its rich history. It was the site of a former print works, in operation from 1780 to 1788. Thomas Bell of Mosney invented his ‘new and peculiar’ method of printing up to six colours at a time, with copper plates. John Slater, a calico printer at Mosney, made further improvements and patented a press “for printing 1-2-3 or more colours on cotton. This invention paved the way towards modern day fabric printing, and was a sign to Emma that she should bring print back to Mosney.

Mosney Mill launched at the 2016 Country Homes & Interiors magazine and Country Living magazine’s Christmas Fairs, receiving amazing feedback and gaining an already loyal following! To top off two incredible shows, Mosney’s roebuck Deer Apron, Tea Towel & Double Oven Gloves were shortlisted by the Editors at Country Living for the People’s Choice Award, a flying start for the Lancashire based business.
