William Kilburn’s exquisitely detailed fabrics were highly sought after in 18th-century Britain. Sold for as much as a guinea a yard, Kilburn even presented one of his block-printed cottons to Queen Charlotte.
Now, you can also indulge in this symbol of Georgian luxury with our exclusive Kilburn tote. Inspired by Kilburn's chintz pattern, taken from the Kilburn Album, it is a modern-day homage to one of the most important craftsmen of the 1700s.
William Kilburn was a botanical illustrator and textile designer born in Dublin in 1745. He was apprenticed to a cotton and linen printer in Dublin before moving to London and starting to sell his own designs. He later purchased a calico printing factory at Wallington in Surrey and produced his own work. He went on to be the most famous designer of block-printed cottons in the 18th century, he created exquisitely detailed designs featuring superbly realised flowers and plants. The V&A holds a unique document dating from 1790, the Kilburn Album, featuring more than 200 of his watercolour textile designs.
