The Victoria & Albert Museum has collaborated once more with heritage textile brand Samuel Lamont on a range of kitchen coordinates for 2019

Renowned for its household textiles for more than 200 years, Irish company Samuel Lamont has continued its collaboration with the archive print-rich Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London with the launch of a new collection of kitchen coordinates.

Having debuted earlier in the year at Spring Fair 2019, the new range of kitchen textiles feature artwork that’s been taken from an original design by James Leman (1688–1745), a master weaver, designer, and prominent member of the Spitalfields silk industry in London’s East End.

James Leman’s fragile yet vibrant album is one of the V&A’s greatest treasures, containing the earliest-known English designs for woven silk.

This new textile design features a mix of floral and geometric forms in a glorious palette and is available across cotton aprons, double oven gloves, gauntlets and cotton tea towels. www.samuellamont.co.uk
