Last year we wrote about Flora Dora, a company using the 1950s and 60s archive of pattern designer Shelia Bownas on fabrics and prints. We clearly weren't the only ones who found the work appealing as her work has now been introduced as a new range for Pedlars.
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.
