Giant leaves arch over pale pink flower baskets and dazzling butterflies can be detected among the foliage. Josef Frank designed the large patterned Delhi print in 1943-1945, while living in New York. For many, the print’s size must have felt very alien despite William Morris previously stating: “Do not be afraid of large patterns; if properly designed they are more restful to the eye than small ones.”
Josef Frank’s textiles with the 315 linen designation are best suited for curtains, pillows and other textile products. They can also be used as upholstery fabric on furniture that is not exposed to excessive wear, such as in the home.
