Neisha Crosland is a textile and surface pattern designer known for her well-balanced repeats of geometrics and flowers, unusual colour combinations and her ability to design patterns for a wide range of products, techniques and mediums.

Neisha trained in textiles at Camberwell School of Art where she developed her drawing style going on to the Royal College of Art in London, where she experimented with print technique. She was talent spotted at her degree show by Osborne and Little and commissioned   to design a collection for them.

In 1994 she started her own Neisha Crosland textile label designing and producing scarves for international fashionable shops. Today she works from her south London studio designing pattern for tiles, rugs, wallpapers, fabrics, vinyl flooring, stationery and scarves.

In 2006 she was honoured with a Royal Designer for Industry Distinction (RDI) and in 2017 University of Arts London made her an Honorary Fellow in recognition for her work in textiles. Her papers and fabrics have been used by leading interior designers, and adorn fashionable hotels clubs and residences around the world, as well as the film sets of Baz Luhrmann and Pedro Almodovar.

Her work is archived at the V&A, and Geffrye Museums, and her book Life of a Pattern was published in 2017.
