Note:
In the 1950s, several textile manufacturers commissioned modern artists to design patterns for their fabrics: a progressive initiative. Karel Appel came up with patterns that were printed on clothing fabrics by textile mills, such as NV Stoomweverij De Nijverheid in Enschede. This work on offer is a prime example of his colourful designs for fabric.
