Best friends Lauren Emerson and Genevieve Hewson are the co-founders of Sydney-based textile house, Walter G. Together, they work with artisans in India to produce hand printed fabrics and home décor products like cushions, napkins and quilts. In this interview, we talk about how they moved to India to live with a family of traditional hand printers to learn the traditional techniques that are now unique to the Walter G brand and how operating their business as if it was a success from day one, meant that when they did take off overnight, they didn’t burst at the seams.
