Searching for inspiration to create African Safari prints for my up coming collection, I came across these in a book that looks at couture textiles of the 1950’s. Here are just a few of my favourites, I adore the use of neutral earthy tones, rhythm and movement!


All these prints are from the book- Shih. J, 1997, Couture Fabrics of the 50's, Schiffer Publishing, Atglen.

If you are creating prints and are after inspiration this is a really great book, it has a variety of samples from flowers to geometrics, and also is fantastic if you're looking at colour schemes.
