1950s fabric designs reissued at V&A website

Daisy fabric

What with the Prey tins featured early today, or the Zara Home Pina design we featured yesterday, it's clear that Fifties fabric designs are still as popular as ever. You can grab another piece of the look with these 1950s fabrics designs that have been reissued by the V&A

Available exclusively online or through mail order, the printed cottons are adapted from designs made for Horrockses Fashions. We've previously featured some of the V&A's Horrockses-inspired products and these designs share that colourful, floral look. Daisy pictured above is also available in a pink colourway, while there are two further designs which use stripes with the flowers. 

If you want to delve a bit further back in time, they are also selling original fabrics inspired by the textiles in the V&A's quilts collection, which we also featured earlier this year

A metre of the 1950s-style cotton costs £8.50 while prices for the other designs vary.
