The name ‘Timorous Beasties’ is taken from the poem ‘To a Mouse’ by Scotland’s much celebrated poet, Robert Burns.

Noted for surreal and provocative textiles and wallpapers, Timorous Beasties, was founded in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons. The design studio’s work could be seen as a wayward take on the often “twee” world of textiles, with heavily illustrative insects, ‘triffid-like’ plants, birds and other animals. They are known for their contemporary take on the ‘Toile de Jouy’ fabrics of Napoleonic France and have designed a number of toiles based on different cities around the world, including London, Glasgow and New York.

Timorous Beasties have collaborated, designed and been commissioned by many brands, clients and projects, including Netjets, Fortnum and Mason, The Wellcome Trust, Philip Treacy, Kate Bush, Famous Grouse Whisky and Nike.
