Timorous Beasties is a design-led manufacturing company based in Glasgow., started by Paul Simmons and Alistair McAuley. Their early work has been described as "William Morris on acid" and could be seen as a wayward take on the often "twee" world of textiles, with heavily illustrative insects, triffid-like plants and large-scale fish swirling in intricate patterns and repeats that adorn rich and heavy fabrics. Their more recent work is as graphic and modern as it is varied.
