Our Story

Textiles have been part of the Walker family heritage for over 200 years when the original James Walker (1797-1865) founded the company in a weaver's cottage with just two handlooms. Descendants expanded the business building mills in both Yorkshire and Witney, Oxfordshire. "Tranquilitie" was born out of this in the 1930s supplying boutique hotels and retail stores internationally with quality blankets.

Tranquilitie stands for high quality British design led textiles with genuine heritage and excellence

Virginia Walker grew up with "Tranquilitie" blankets as a child; the same blankets remain with her today, a symbol of their quality and timeless appeal. It was this that inspired Virginia to re-invigorate the "Tranquilitie" brand. A former Central Saint Martins student with a background in luxury markets, a keen eye for colour and sensitivity for understated elegance, Virginia has joined the family business having spent time designing in London, Milan and New York. With experience in both interiors and fashion, Virginia has the intention to breathe fresh life and new designs into her family's business whilst developing new markets.
