Lucienne Day, with Florimel and Elysian furnishing fabrics, Lucienne Day, 1949

Lucienne met Alastair Morton, director of Carlisle-based Edinburgh Weavers, through the Society of Industrial Artists. He was very supportive and commissioned these two attractive furnishing prints, which acted as a springboard for her post-war career.
