Dianthus Chintz is an exceptionally detailed botanical print inspired by an eighteenth century sarong belonging to antique textile collector Karun Thakar. Charmed by its fantastical fronds and frilled dianthus heads, Lulu reworked the antique design to create a fabric and wallpaper in 3 colourways. The wallpaper design is of a slightly smaller scale that the Dianthus Chintz fabric.
The Karun Thakar Fund
As a way of acknowledging Karun Thakar’s generosity in allowing Soane to draw inspiration from the textiles in his collection, we initiated The Karun Thakar Fund in collaboration with the V&A Museum.
Established in 2021 by Soane and anonymous donors, The Fund promotes materials-based, object-led learning, drawing on the collections of both the V&A and Karun Thakar and offers scholarships to student practitioners and researchers studying any aspect of Asian or African textile/dress design or history. By choosing fabrics from Soane’s collaboration with Karun Thakar you are directly supporting this Fund.
Make an Enquiry
No claims for faulty fabrics or wallpapers can be made after the fabrics or wallpapers have been cut or hung. Soane cannot accept returns of unused rolls.
We recommend ordering one additional roll to cover future repairs or under the quoting quantity required. The paper is hand painted and the colours are mixed by hand and matched by eye which means the batches do vary slightly.
