Textile Tuesday: California by Josef Frank

CALIFORNIA by Josef Frank is my current Textile Tuesday crush from Svenskt Tenn. 

California is one of the prints that Josef Frank designed during the period 1942–1945. The inspiration for the flowers in the motif was found in Gladys Lynwall Pratt’s American Garden Flowers.

In total, Josef Frank has drawn twenty different (named) summer flowers, among them cress, sweet pea, pansy, dahlia, petunia and zinnia, which are all held together by a winding flowerbed of dots.

Isn’t it a beauty?
