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.
