Cathay 0404 IMPERIAL YELLOW
Why we love this
Inspired by a seventeenth century design for a fireplace by the Huguenot cabinet maker Daniel Marot, Chinese pots, plates and cups are held within a framework of scrolls and steps.
Hand printed on a pure linen drill in London, it is then sent to a finishing mill in Yorkshire. Here, the ‘tumbling’ process brings out the texture of the ground cloth giving wonderful variation within the printed areas, and the softest handle.
