Mid-Century Flower Fabric

Flower Power was a slogan embraced by hippies in the 1960s and it went on to become one of the most influential mid-century sayings.

The essence of flower power was not simply flowers but the rather stylised version of them that began to appear on fabric in the UK during the latter half of that decade. Mid-century clothes in the iconic boutiques in Carnaby Street and Kings Road in London often used fabric sporting these stylised flower patterns which, as the decade progressed, became ever more abstract.

This pattern pays homage to the types of flowers originally produced although the style is perhaps nearer to the original early 1960s designs. It is shown above as it would look if it were made into cushions and as a swatch.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this along with how the pattern would look if it were produced just as material and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
