This cotton furnishing fabric was designed by Ronald Simpson, a textile designer and woodworker from Kendal in Cumbria, England. Simpson joined the Carlisle firm of Alexander Morton & Co. in 1908, and produced many designs for their printed ranges, including this example. This fabric has been roller-printed, a method that was patented in 1783, and came to be used on a large scale in the 19th and 20th centuries as a quick patterning technique....
