public_access_description
Barbara Brown (b. 1932 Manchester) was trained at Canterbury College of Art and then at the Royal Colleage of Art from 1953 - 1956. She is known for her strong geometric award-winning designs from the 1960s and early 1970s, produced chiefly for Heal Fabrics Ltd.. She taught printed textile design at Medway College of Art, Kent in the 1960s and at the Royal college of Art until the early 1990s. Heal Fabrics Ltd., London, was founded in 1941 as a subsidiary of the long-established firm Heal & Son and was originally known as Heal's Wholsesale and Export Ltd.. After the Second World War the company began to specialize in furnishing fabrics and in 1958 changed its name to Heal Fabrics. Under the visionary direction of Tom Worthington (1948-1971) the company secured a worldwide reputation for issuing well-designed contemporary fabrics.
