Stylised flower heads set out in bold bands, FLORA was one of Neisha ‘s very first designs, printed onto silk chiffon for a scarf in 1996. This marked the beginning of a lasting interest in the simplicity of the paired down patterns of 17th century Japanese kimono fabrics. A 1950’s Northern European mood is mixed in to create an interesting ambiguity – ”I love the way that ambiguity can create an interesting tension and it makes you question where things come from‘’. The design has now been updated, in collaboration with Turnell & Gigon, into a sumptuous woven velvet upholstery/heavy curtain fabric, available in three colours – Oolong Blue, Lapsang Gold and Jasmine Ivory. Available now at Turnell and Gigon.
