Introducing our new reproduced 1930s print – Deco Dot
In 2015, i had the incredible opportunity of acquiring a collection of original vintage print designs dating from the 1920s through to early 50s and are largely from Paris. They appear as a square design on a blank sheet and are stamped for authenticity. The majority are probably 1930s – which is a favourite era of mine for prints. There are many art deco geometric themed prints in this collection and the ‘Deco Dot’ is the first we have taken to print.
Im not a fan of polka dots anymore – probably because they are everywhere – but dots are nice and a great alternative to florals. So our idea with this print was to create a print that could be The House of Foxy version of a polka dot….our ‘take’ on it.
We decided to product the initial print run in a stunning emerald green but as you can see, the original design in a deep chocolate brown. This design has so much potential with colour use – i think we will produce it in a few different colour ways. For now – the emerald is very popular – for this time of year it is bright but it an be worn throughout the year. The fabric is 100% raton marocain crepe – reminiscent of the vintage fabrics used in the 1930s & 40s. Hence the majority of the garments we are making in this fabric are from these eras.
