Betty Boyns

Paula studied art at Falmouth School of Art, and then moved to Bristol to work first as a journalist, then an events organiser. Eventually, however, she could no longer resist returning to Cornwall and, ‘determined to do something arty’, she started a card company, It was an immediate success, and Paula branched first into prints and then, spotting a gap in the market for vintage-style wrapping paper and fabric, set up Betty Boyns. In doing so she is following a family tradition in the fabric industry – her father, uncle and grandfather all worked for the renowned Crysede Textiles and the later Cresta Silks the former who supplied Libertys and Cresta who produced designs by the likes of Paul Nash, Patrick Heron and Graham Sutherland , in St Ives in the Thirties, Forties and Fifties.
