    Christiane Von Trapp



    Heirlooms are honoured to collaborate with the renowned porcelain painted Christiane Von Trapp in creating a selection of bespoke linens to compliment her range of hand painted porcelain.

     Christiane lives with her husband Count Gaudenz Von Trapp a descendant of the Austrian aristocratic family, in the impressive 12th Century castle Friedberg Atelier, nestled in the heart of the Alps on what is called “Peace Mountain”. It is here she finds the inspiration to paint dreams into porcelain. She has a wealth of stories and inspiration and has worked with an eclectic range of private clients across the globe creating very personalised pieces of ceramics whether for everyday use or as future family heirlooms.

     Of course, the name “Von Trapp” is instantly recognised by many having been immortalised in one of the best loved musical of all time, “The Sound of Music”.

     Christiane’s collection is somewhat avant-garde created with German precision, the eye of an artist and her unique playfulness to span the bridge between traditional and modern language, she creates her bespoke hand painted porcelain with an abundance of passion and love. Combining the finesse of the nobility, the freshness of Friedberg castle and its surrounding nature, family history with exotic colours and patterns.

     With a long-standing relationship with the renowned Germany porcelain company Reichenbach, Christiane invests her time and energy in delivering new designs with the grace and beauty of unique timeless pieces that are far removed from the mass market products. Personalising her work, she incorporates the traditional and classic whilst trying to stretch to the modern bridge in-between.

     Her great interest in design and interior décor has made her a welcome regular at international shows such as “Maison & Objet”, “Salone del Mobile and Ambiente”.

     Christiane has collaborated with the Swarovski family to incorporate engraving crystal into her porcelain design “Starflowers” set with Swarovski crystals which she produced exclusively for their castle.

    Heirlooms Expansion 2016


    UK-based Heirlooms have announced the completion of their 12-month expansion and investment plans. The news comes following significant growth in orders in the same period, thanks in part to the expansion of its manufacturing facility in West Sussex.

    The significant investments have seen Heirlooms facilities almost double in size, an increase in skilled machinists and the purchase of a custom-made automated cutting machine.

     “Expanding our production facility in West Sussex and the addition of the fully automated cutting machine means that we can meet the current and future demand of our clients”, commented Ruth Douglas.

Whilst the initial investment plan has been completed we have further investment plans for 2017 which we are very excited about and can’t wait to share with our clients when the time is right” added Ruth

    “We are very proud of the fact we hold a premiere position within the industry and have a wealth of experience in creating bespoke linens for yachts and private residences. Each order is made bespoke to the client’s specification on our state-of-the-art embroidery machines.
