Karun Thakar – Arabesque Wallpaper – Olive

Code - ABW003

The design for Arabesque originates from an 18th century block printed textile in the collection of Karun Thakar. The gentle monochrome print has a floral arabesque design of vine scrolls, leaves and palmettes. Having been translated into a wallpaper the floral scroll retains its origins as a hand block printed design.

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.

We recommend ordering one additional roll to cover future repairs or in case your installer has underestimated the quantity required. The paper ground is hand-painted and all colours are mixed by hand and matched by eye which means the batches do vary slightly.
