The scale and intricate detail of this printed poplin cleverly depicts a parrot within a parrot. Designed by Lulu Lytle, it is based on a mid 19th century Indian textile with the colouring as true as possible to the original. A large scale design, it would make a huge impact on curtains and hangings. At £118m it is available to order (over the phone) from Soane Britain.
