Avis Higgs Design reprinted


Another 1940's Avis Higgs textile design has been printed once again. The "Circles" print comes from Avis Higgs' time at STP (Silk and Textile Printers) in Sydney, Australia.

100% linen curtains featuring the design in a taupe colourway now hang in one of Avis Higgs' former residences (and was seen during the Wadestown House and Garden Tour recently).

A dress in the original navy fabric is included in a collection of Avis' textiles at MTG Hawkes Bay in Napier.
