Palampore Blossom – Geranium – Stone Linen
Code - PAL004
Palampore Blossom was inspired by a wonderful eighteenth century Indian palampore, a type of hand painted bedcover traditionally produced for Europeans in India. Each palampore would take hours to create with complex and elaborate patterns depicting a wide variety of plants, flowers and animals. The fanciful flowers and leaves often seen in Indian textiles arose from a re-interpretation of unfamiliar plants seen in sample pattern books sent to producers from England and France. By adding a screen, it has been possible to print the strong geranium red background.
Lulu’s desire to replicate the spirit and scale of the original document means that there is an irregular repeat and a relatively narrow usable width compared to the full pattern width. Clients should therefore be aware of the need to order more fabric to make up a full width.
Please note that this is not a half drop repeat.
