Furnishing fabric 'Pamela' of printed linen, possibly designed by Vanessa Bell or Duncan Grant for Omega Workshops, made by Besselièvre, Maromme, France, 1913

Furnishing fabric of printed linen. With an arc and angle pattern formed by bold lines and scalloped bands.

This printed linen furnishing fabric was designed and sold by The Omega Workshops Ltd. Founded in 1913 by Roger Fry, Omega Workshops was a group of artists (including Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant) who designed furniture, pottery, carpets, textiles, stained glass and whole schemes of interior decoration. The Omega textile designs were ahead of their time and set a fashion for abstract and geometric patterns.
