The _Story

A design from leading Scottish textile designer, Laura Spring, inspired by the Bombay Sample Book

This pattern was created as part of the India Street Project, curated by Katy West. Supported by the British Council and Creative Scotland, India Street worked with a group of designers from Scotland and India to initially explore the Turkey Red archive known as the Bombay Sample Book held at The National Gallery of Scotland. The project has developed over the past three years, during early 2015 the Scottish designers taken over to India in 2015 to learn the art of block printing from master craftspeople and to gain a deeper understanding of traditional Indian crafts and the history behind them. As a group, we were then invited to develop our designs further into motifs that could be block printed onto fabric in India to create a range of products which were then exhibited as part of an exhibition looking at the entire project at Tramway, Glasgow in June 2016.

The _Construction

Hand Woven

Often called flatweaves or kilims, hand-woven rugs are made using a loom-weaving process that creates a neat alignment of yarn. A great technique for reproducing geometric pattern and also makes a good choice if budget is tight.
