Flockhart Fabrics is an extraordinary collection of fabric designs from the 1940s and 50s being revived by Lucy Mackenzie, granddaughter of the original artists painter Eileen Guthrie and her sculptor husband George Kennethson. They hand-printed their designs from lino blocks and silk screens which still exist today, along with many other beautiful original pieces of fabric. While the designs were originally sold by Eileen at Primavera on Sloane Street, over the years the fabrics and blocks were carefully stored away and so it is that this beautiful archive of prints has remained largely unseen until now. We love it! No, we are in love with it!
