About Lorna

Hello, I’m Lorna, creator of Lorna Morris (LM) Textiles and Interiors.  I specialise in making bespoke, handmade and made to measure soft furnishings including curtains and Roman blinds.  I run my business and make all your beautiful soft furnishings from my workroom in Cartmel, a village nestled on the edge of the Lake District. My workroom is currently located at the Cartmel Institute, an historic building situated in Devonshire Square. 

 

I am originally from Blackburn, Lancashire.  It was the town next door, Darwen, where I completed an apprenticeship in soft furnishings with John Lewis specialising in making Roman blinds.  I worked for John Lewis for around 4 years, then in September of 2019 I moved from Blackburn to Cartmel in Cumbria.  I worked for a small company in Kendal for just over a year, it was in October of 2020 I made the courageous decision to start my own soft furnishing business.  It has been my dream to start my own business, my dream is now a reality. 

 

I have had a passion for textiles and interiors for as long as I can remember, studying textiles at school then developing my skills at College for 2 years on a Art and Design Extended Diploma Course, followed by a 1 year Art and Design Foundation Diploma, specialising in textiles in both Diplomas. 

 

In my early teens I designed my own bedroom choosing everything from paint colours, carpets, bedding, curtains and furniture.  I then went onto designing two more bedrooms - I upgraded as I got older and even pinched my sister’s “big bedroom” when she moved out!  With a lot of help from my mum I decorated everything too!

 

I hope you find everything you need on my website. I look forward to hearing from you to create the perfect finishing touches for your home.
