Behind the Design – Patanga

Meaning “moth” in Hindi, Patanga is a vividly patterned linen evoking tropical forests with rambling flowers and exotic insects. Designed in collaboration with the artist Charlotte Johnstone and initially inspired by south-east Asian fabrics in Soane’s textile archive, Charlotte’s painterly pattern is instilled with her great interest in gardens and pollinators. Charlotte made numerous studies in pencil and watercolour, and her artwork has been faithfully replicated by printers in England to retain all the distinct characteristics of her original design.
