Special discounts and incentives for students

Latest Student Competition - 2017

Coming soon!

We’re about to launch our new student competition.

We have listened to your lecturers and past students telling us about the type of work and skills they think are important on your design course. After mixing in a bit of industry practice, we have our final competition brief all written and approved.

Watch this page for it’s release.


We are offering ALL students 20% off their digital textile printing during the 2016/2017 academic year.

First Steps Incentive

We realise how difficult it can be to make the transition from student to professional designer. To help new designers we are offering the student 20% discount for an extra year to graduating students.

Just let us know when you want to place an order and supply a copy of your last Student ID card.

Student Terms and Conditions

  1. Students requesting a 20% discount must present a Student Identity Card from the current academic year with every order submitted.
  2. Students requesting a 20% discount during their first year after graduating must present their last Student Identity Card, clearly showing the academic year of graduation.
  3. All orders placed are subject to the availability of the fabrics selected.
  4. The Silk Bureau Limited reserve the right to refuse an order.

Student Competition - Interiors 2016

Congratulations to Amelia Anderson from Bath Spa University.detail  of painted flower

We particularly liked the hand rendered quality of this repeat pattern. The team felt that this provided texture and depth against the contrasting background.

Amelia has been invited to visit the Silk Bureau and follow the process of digital textile printing from artwork to the final printed fabric.

We also want to congratulate all of the students who entered; we received many outstanding designs. Our only regret is that there can only be one winner.

Thank you to all the students that entered the competition. Look out for more opportunities in the future.
