Hand Printed British Textile Design from the 1950s

This stunning geometric design featured in Shirley Craven's first collection following her graduation. 

 Venetian Stripe was shown in 1959.  

We have several lots of this design for auction 
9th - 21st September 2022 (Timed Auction).  

In 1960 Shirley joined Hull Traders as Colour and Design Consultant and within two years was the company's Chief Designer.  The use of bold colour was evident from her earliest works and here it is used to bold effect, controlled within a harmonious palette.  

A stunning piece of original hand printed 1950s British Textile design from this innovative designer who helped lead an interior design revolution.
