This stunning length with its four horizontal bands of massing warriors holding pennants is  stunning in design and colours. It would look wonderful as a hanging.

Cullingdale Weavers were based at Oxenhope, Nr Keighley, Yorkshire. I have been unable to find out about the company or Gillian Richardson.  Love to hear from you if you have any information. Mr Chris Hyde has just contacted me because his father in law Jim (James Walter John)  Crouch (1912-1998) set up Cullingdale Weavers with two colleagues in the early 60s. Prior to this he was a sales rep for Warners Fabrics.


Minster designed by Gillian Richardson for Cullingdale Wavers Ltd, with four horizontal bands of      figures in battle costume, holding pennants, in front of a church, all in shades of ochre, pink, brown, rust, pale and mid green and white.

Length:  7ft 6 in; 2.3 m

Width: 50 in; 1.27 m selvedge to selvedge


Very good.
