Designer Evelyn Redgrave began creating patterns for Heal's Fabrics Ltd. in 1969 while a student at Hornsey College of Art. The following year, she was named textile consultant, and became one of the firm's directors in 1974. In the early 1970s, she also designed wallpapers for the American market. Redgrave left Heal's in 1977 to open her own textile business, Tarian Design.

In 1972, Heal's first introduced its line of textiles made of Terylene, a polyester fiber (known as Dacron in the US), followed by a line of cotton-poly blends, including Gradient.
