This furnishing fabric is inspired in its design and colouring by imported Indian chintzes. Its colours were built up with a series of wood blocks carrying madder colours with different mordants to produce the shades required. Blue and green (blue over yellow) were added by painting or 'pencilling' indigo with a brush.

public_access_description
The detailed drawing of this design is reminiscent of hand-painted Indian cottons which had been popular imports into Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries, although their import was controlled by legislation intended to protect the home textile industries of wool and silk weaving. This example is known to be English because it has three blue threads woven into the selvedge, a legal requirement for English cottons (relating to the payment of duty) under legislation in force between 1774 and 1811.
