Flora Dora - textile designs from the 1950s and 60s


Flora Dora is a new online shop selling the rediscovered textile designs of Sheila Bownas, dating from the 1950s and 60s.

Chelsea Cefai bought the archive containing over 200 designs of Sheila Bownas at auction and has since been working to bring them to a wider market. The store, Flora Dora, begins with two collections: the above print, 'Pip' is from the 1963 collection and is available as a print and over the page is 'Rosa' from the 1959 collection which is available as cotton drill. 

The whole archive dates from the 1940s to the 1980s so look out for more designs to come. 

Prints are priced at £58 each while the fabric is priced at £55 at metre. You can buy a postcard pack containing ten of Sheila Bownas's designs for £12.50.
