Our aim when we started Patternbank was to re-invent the way buyers purchase textile designs and open up the way designers were able to sell their work online. Today buyers from all over the world are now able to purchase an incredibly diverse range of designs from our large team of talented designers.
To continue our relentless goal to re-invent, we are removing Premium membership so now anyone that creates a free account can access and buy our extensive range of Premium Exclusive Designs. We are also reducing the cost of Premium Exclusive designs. Unlike our Standard and Extended Licensed designs these are instantly removed from the site once purchased.
Shop 30k+ of Standard/Extended and now Premium Exclusively Licensed Designs from the world’s largest online collection of textile designers.
Activewear, Sportswear, Athleisure – call it what you will, this sector has seen massive growth over the past few years. It’s moved out of the gyms and yoga studios into main high street fashion.

Today Patternbank are featuring the work of print designer Soufiane Lafkih in our ongoing series highlighting our great designers here on the Patternbank Textile Print Design Studio. Soufiane has an extensive collection of designs including hand painted florals and digitally created geometrics. We asked Soufiane about his education and what inspires him, “I had a styliste and graphiste diploma from ESMOD school Paris, which I chose because of my passion and love for the fashion and clothing styles. My sources of inspiration are nature first, I love how the colours harmonise with each other. As for fashion, I follow street styles and the seasonal catwalk shows and the fashion designer who inspires me the most is Dirk Bikkembergs. Check out more of Soufiane’s work here on her Patternbank Studio profile page.
A very popular part of our site is the seasonal trend themes section, all our designers receive a monthly directional trend newsletter, they design into themes and then we collate them into seasonal trend stories. This saves our buyers valuable time when looking for those new prints. ‘Stargazer’ is a strong story seen recently on the Catwalks.
Patternbank have been feeling the festive Christmas vibe and have been checking out the latest styles on the high street and online for Christmas this year. We have put together some key looks we’ve spotted. Happy Christmas dressing!
