With its superbly symmetrical pattern originally designed by C.F.A. Voysey in 1895 our striking Arts & Crafts fabric is printed on beautifully tactile English cotton velvet. Perfect in its simplicity this archive motif of stylised flowers reveals hidden birds amongst a richly coloured ground. Alongside his architectural practice which he established in 1882 Voysey is equally well known for his lively patterns featuring birds hearts and flowerheads. He designed repeating wallpaper and textile patterns for many leading Arts & Crafts manufacturers and in 1896 The Studio Journal of Decorative Art published the article ‘Some Recent Designs by Mr Voysey’ which included an illustration of this wallpaper with its impressive large-scale coordinating border.
