Tammis Keefe may not be a household name, certainly in the UK, but in the 1940s and 1950s the American designer was responsible for many popular and cheerful textile designs. Michael Miller have now reissued some of her most distinctive designs for fabric and Fifties enthusiasts. 

Fifteen designs have been reissued in total, selected from the work of the prolific designer. The playful Alligator cotton shown above is illustrative of Keefe's style which, in turn, was very typical of the period. Other designs are based around cats, birds and owls. 

The fabrics are available from a range of sellers on Etsy, with prices starting for around $8 a yard.
