Compton Marbling began making hand-marbled paper and products in the early 1970s, in the garden shed of our founder, Solveig Stone. Inspired by an exhibition of marbled papers by Douglas Cockerell, she started using oil paint and a home-made marbling tank. In 1981 she moved her studio to beautifully restored 19th century farm buildings in the rolling countryside on the borders of Wiltshire and Dorset.
The business has grown over four decades but each sheet of our marbled paper is still made individually, by hand, using traditional methods that date back many centuries. Our range of pieces for the home draw on the heritage of marbling, but bring a fresh, modern take, suitable for all homes.
All our limited-edition ranges are designed in our studio in Wiltshire, and are available exclusively from our website and from our studio shop. We also supply a select range of hand-marbled papers to bookbinders, conservationists and furniture restorers and interior designers around the world.
