Icon: Jacqueline Groag

Jacqueline Groag was born in Czechoslovakia in 1903 and despite her success as a textile designer during her lifetime her name isn't known to many outside the textile industry. Looking at her designs from the 1950s, they could still be used in many households today without looking dated which is a testament to her talent.

I enjoy her playful illustrative style that adds a painterly element to repeat pattern. The bold colour palette of the designs ensures that smaller details 'pop' especially in designs with a darker background.

Here are some more designs for you to enjoy...
