TEXTILE COMPETITION, News Yorker Notice, Tony's first prize


Missed Opportunity.

These are five designs for Pyjamas in the studio collection. Phil suggested that we greet the guests at the Private View in Norwich dressed in matching pyjamas made from Petruccelli textiles. He could have the Window Cleaners. Bags me the Tug Boats.

Apart from the two decorative patterns shown , the use of urban imagery in repeated patterns in early Thirties textiles must have been startling. Oddly enough there is a linking theme of water - Firemen, Tugs and washing windows. Because of the missed opportunity we never got to find out if this motif was a diuretic.
