Burleigh And Ralph Lauren Home Team Up For A Spirited Collaboration

Sarah Bray | July 3, 2019 | Home & Real Estate

A historic British potter’s first collaboration has an authentically American spirit.

Burleigh is the only remaining pottery house in the world still practicing a 250-year-old technique called tissue-transfer printing. This labor-intensive process requires 25 different pairs of hands to create a single teacup or saucer.

Members of Soho House might recognize British pottery brand Burleigh (burleigh.co.uk) stacked at the beginning of the club’s Sunday brunch buffets. The china pattern’s English countryside style is so coveted that Meghan Markle has commissioned the designers behind Soho House to decorate her new home, Frogmore Cottage (appropriate since Burleigh’s 2-centuries-old factory’s preservation is in due part to her father-in-law, the Prince of Wales). But there’s another iconic American who’s starry eyed over the quintessentially English look: Ralph Lauren. This spring, Ralph Lauren Home has collaborated with Burleigh on three original patterns ($32 to $125, ralphlaurenhome.com)—marking the first time since Burleigh’s 1851 founding that the brand has featured another designer’s patterns.
