Inspired by traditional Japanese brushwork and painting the Teahouse collection (2001) captured the contrast of delicate brushwork and the loose painting style synonymous with Eastern Asia. Designs explored the artisanal technique of letting the ink “bleed” to create an abstract quality to the designs.

Skopos’ 50th Anniversary design, Tea Garden is a re-incarnation of an original floral design within the collection, named “Birdsong”. A calming floral story, The Tea Garden design has been produced in the same scale as the original. However, a move on from flatbed printing, modern separation and digital printing techniques have allowed the delicate quality of the original hand-painted artwork to be retained, capturing a beautiful tonality and adding greater delicacy back into the design.

A simple, yet effective basketweave design, Interlace was originally launched in 1983. It was part of a collection of neat, structured designs, aimed at the hospitality market. Based on woven structures and originally launched in 7 colourways, Interlace has a timeless appeal, enabling it to be as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.

Designs for May are available on any of our standard print base-cloths. Both designs are being offered in 2 colourways for immediate order. For alternative colourways, in-line with minimum order requirements, our design team will be able to help.
