Art Deco Cryséde Silk Scarf


This scarf was commissioned by the Sainsbury Centre Shop using an original 1920’s period design from the Cornish fabric printing and garment manufacturing company Cryséde.

The original design was named ‘Penberth Farm’ by Alec Walker. The design features radiating lines linking houses, trees, and swooping birds. The scarf is hand block printed in yellow and lilac on a red background.

Cryséde was set up in 1920 by Yorkshire born Alec George Walker. Using his own paintings and sketches, he began creating the distinctive abstract designs, for which the company gained international renown from 1923. The company is best known for its block printed designs on silk.
