A beautiful mid-scale floral pattern based on a French 18th century block print. The stylised flowers look rather like poppies and chrysanthemums set within a ribbon structure. In indigo and dark chocolate on an ivory linen ground, this hand printed fabric is truly enchanting.

The background is a mass of tiny dots  – a technique called ‘pointillage’, created when the block was carved to leave a series of raised dots, which explains the irregularity in their scale and placement – the original marks of the block printer and the happy mistakes and over-prints with only a little tidying, remain as the original.
