John Piper: The Fabric of Modernism, the first exhibition to focus on Piper’s textile designs is now showing at the Pallant Gallery in Chichester. Piper is my favourite mid-century modern textile designer, and if you can’t afford one of his watercolours why not buy a length of Arundel or Chiesa della Salute he designed and hang it on your wall.

Take a look at a six sectioned trapunto cap for a boy in Costume - 18th century and a stunning bergere straw hat lined with green silk brocade. 

I invite you to look in all the sections for the latest pieces. I am gradually adding more pieces so keep looking.
