This is a Textile. It was designed by Zandra Rhodes and company: Osborne and Little. It is dated 1987 and we acquired it in 1989. Its medium is cotton and its technique is screen printed on plain weave. It is a part of the Textiles department.
Textile and fashion designer Zandra Rhodes is known for her outrageously colorful prints. Many of her feminine designs are combined with the spikes, holes, and safety pins emblematic of the punk era. Here, she uses a series of spikes to demarcate her paisley pattern, giving a sharp edge to a usually soft shape.
