Wardle comes down but his patterns can still be seen…

The textile exhibition The Manchester Indian: Thomas Wardle and India has come down this week.  The wonderful selection of textiles collected by Wardle in India, or dyed and printed by his company in Leek, are coming off their display stands and going back into storage.

Wardle fans can still look through over 1700 pages of his pattern books on the Whitworth website: http://www.whitworth.manchester.ac.uk/collection/recentprojects/wardle/  You’ll also find essays about Thomas Wardle and the design, making and use of printed textiles in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
