Ombré Plain c.1956

Very much a twentieth century design, this is a 1950’s English pattern found at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester.  A band of fine, single colour white stripes over flat ground(s), it's in fact the space between stripes that creates the subtle optical movement.  The more complex striped versions contain an additional three ground colours each, and the plain versions are produced in matching colourways to specifically coordinate with the different elements of the stripe, offering a highly flexible range of papers to be used in combination in traditional and contemporary homes alike.
