This iconic fabric was designed by Tom Mellor for David Whitehead in 1954. Called "Flower Pot" it is a roller printed, spun rayon and was designed as a furnishings fabric.
This fabric came out just three years after the Festival of Britain, and reflects many of the design styles that were beginning to emerge. Stylised plants, blocks of colour and abstract shapes.
Flowerpots is part of the V&A collection - just in case you needed even more of a pedigree!
This is unused, original fabric in perfect condition. It measures 117cm wide and is sold in half metre lengths. If you order more than one piece it will come as an uncut length. Each flowerpot is about 18cm high and the colour blocks are 8cm x 9cm.
Use it for a cushion, a bag, a dress or just as a piece of wall art. Wherever you put it, you'll be looking at a bit of genuine textile history and it'll make you happy!
