This printed cloth was purchased by the donor's parents at Heal and Son Ltd, Tottenham Court Road in 1953 or 1954. It was used to make curtains which hung in the couples' flat in Kingsway House, Gibralter. Kingsway house is part of the Alameda estate which was built between 1945 and 1949. These curtains, with their modern geometric design would have fitted will into the newly built flat. The cloth was designed by Jacqueline Groag who had come to Britain in 1939 and was an influential and well-known designer by the 1950s, producing textile and wallpaper designs for a variety of companies.
