This was so much fun, I have backed them with some fantasic  blue fabric. Nicola Wood produced several designs for Heals in the early to mid 1960’s. Her work is rather distinctive, all the pieces I have come across have a very painterly, abstract, expressionist quality. ‘Vibration’ is typical of this style.  The fabric is 100% cotton barkcloth, very typical of the period.
