About AK-Wilde

AK-Wilde is the company name for a new collection of designs and products by Textile Designer and Teacher, Karen Hamilton-Bannis. AK-Wilde’s range of print designs, are heavily influenced by the beauty of nature, the diversity of plant life and the rich patterns, colours  and symbolism of global cultures. .

Why, AK-Wilde?


AK-Wilde is named after my two daughters; the AK represents Aylia and Karissa and the Wilde after my love of nature and all things wild and wonderful.

A graduate of the London College of Fashion (University of the Arts), and a recent graduate from the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design. For many years, I was a teacher to Key stage 3, 4 and A Level Textiles in a secondary school, but decided to focus on developing my passion for printed textiles.

I  create unique surface pattern designs in a variety of themes which can be bought or licenced. Some designs are also available to buy as scarves and home furnishing items from my online shop.
