'Interesting new designs were first created for children's clothing and decor during the 1920s and 1930s. Cheerful fabric creations were produced especially for the very young; and it is hard to imagine that they did not exist until relatively recent times. Early juvenile prints are charming, with colourful themes such as children at play, fairy tales, cartoon characters and pets. These prints are avidly collected today..' Antique Frencxh Textiles For Designers by June K Laval.
Here are some examples from the period, the cats and Red Riding Hood (thanks Lizzie) pieces were lucky finds at Ardingly Antiques Fair yesterday.
