The Pattern Exhibition
100 Years of Textile Designs and Fabric Samples from Two Private Collections
The Pattern Sale is a celebration of colour, fabric and the extraordinary wealth of design created over the span of a century, comprising two private collections, A Private Collection of Fabric Sample Books and The John Barker Archive. The collections will form the basis of an exhibition, which will run from 2nd October – 2nd November, and the sale will take place on 20th November.
A PRIVATE COLLECTION OF FABRIC SAMPLE BOOKS
The body of The Pattern Sale is made up of over 170 fabric and textile sample books, which have been amassed over 30 years by the owner for historical reference and design inspiration and contains nearly 130,000 individual fabric samples.
THE JOHN BARKER ARCHIVE
A fascinating snapshot of Manchester textile design in the mid-19th century comes in the form of the John Barker Archive, a well-documented collection of over 800 sketches and designs for fabric and wallpaper executed between 1860 and 1872 by John Barker of Salford.
