Rowan has once again researched deep within the Victoria and Albert Museum's archive to create this collection of inspired designs for beautiful 100% cotton fabrics. The collection is comprised of six designs ranging from the stunning large scale Jacobean to elegant and understated Crewel. The V&A holds one of the world's largest and the most wide-ranging collection of textiles and fashion. Museum objects: Jacobean is inspired by a textile panel of embroidered silk, designed by the Leek Embroidery Society, embroidered by Frances Mary Templeton, made by Sir Thomas and Arthur Wardle Ltd, England, about 1892. Lace is inspired by a panel of needle lace, Venice, 1630-69. Stripe is created in the likeness of an embroidered bed curtain border from Greece (Cyclades, perhaps Melos), 1700s. Soutache resembles a woven jamdani muslin, Bengal, probably Dhaka, about 1855-79. Batick is from a furnishing fabric, resist printed cotton, Holland, 1650-99. Crewel is from a woman's coif of linen embroidered with colored silks and metal thread in a floral design, England, 1620-40.
