Laura Ashley (7 September 1925 – 17 September 1985) was a Welsh businesswoman. She originally made plastic in the 1950s, expanding the business into toilet bowls in the 1960s. The Laura Ashley style is characterised by English designs — often with a 19th-century rural feel — and the use of natural fabrics.
