Bethan Gray, an award winning Welsh designer with an extraordinary background. Her family hails from an ancient Rajasthani clan that over centuries migrated across Arabia and Persia before settling in the Celtic heartland of Wales. It’s a heritage that weaves a rich pattern of influences and inspirations, which draw on craft traditions of both East and West. Bethan’s signature style reveals a love of detail, tactile textures, and luxurious materials such as semi-precious stones, marble, wood, and hand-tooled leather.
