Providing a fascinating glimpse into the creative process of French textile design, this journal draws inspiration from a striking pattern featuring elements from the natural world. Intricate, lush foliage and flowers were hand-painted or block-printed on paper to create this master pattern dating from the 1860s, which would have been used to create a template for the mass production of the fabric.
