Inspired by Mexico City’s architecture and fabrics, the British designer has now created a collection of bright, boldly patterned woven jacquard textiles and rugs for Italian furniture brand Moroso. ‘I was heavily influenced by the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, an incredible Seventies church with angled stained-glass windows,’ says Bethan. ‘There is so much beautiful architecture around the city, from Thirties Aztec art deco buildings to old Catholic churches.
