Zardi & Zardi are tapestry specialists, supplying custom reproductions, fabrics and wallpapers. For more information please explore our website.

The Company is currently in a period of growth and transition, having recently entered a new distribution agreement with a London-based furnishings company, Watts of Westminster.

We urgently require a new member of staff to focus on this project, to support the Director in the creation of approximately 60 new products.

  • These product sheets will contain precise details such as measurements, drop layouts and technical specifications, within a set template
  • The creation of ‘print files’ for each new product. These are the files which will be used by our wallpaper and fabric printers when an order is placed

Essential qualities:

  • IT skills, particularly Photoshop and MS Office
  • Ability to focus and maintain a high level of attention to detail
  • Methodical way of working
  • Good verbal and written communication skills

  • Knowledge or experience of the interiors / design / print industry
  • Experience of working in a creative environment


The studio is based within the Director’s home, in a barn conversion in the village of Edge (GL6 6NJ). Although it is possible to commute by public transport, we are based in a very rural location and therefore applicants should consider travel arrangements before applying.

Deadline for applications: Friday 27 May

Please email enquiries@zardiandzardi.co.uk with a CV and a covering letter, ensuring to provide information on how you meet the criteria above. Please also include information on your availability for work and indicate any dates that you are not available for interview.
