GP&J Baker - Crayford Collection




Crayford, once a small market town in Kent, traces its connection with textile printing to the 1730s. The earliest print works site was acquired by GP & J Baker in 1893.

Crayford Print Collection: All GP & J Baker'
s production was from the Crayford site at this time, sourcing designs from Voysey and other important Arts and Crafts designers. Initially the company printed by hand block, producing many of the classic designs with which it is still associated today including 'Nympheus' (1915), 'Imperial Pheasant' (1915), 'Bamboo Bird' (1915) and 'Tree Peony' (1917).

This outstanding collection drawn from the treasures of the GP & J Baker archive provides distinctive and original decorating solutions. The magnificent designs of the Crayford Print Collection have withstood the test of time by being able to adapt to changing colour trends and evolving furnishing styles.

Crayford Wallpaper Collection: The wonderfully diverse treasures of the GP & J Baker archive have provided inspiration for this exceptional wallpaper collection. These unique historical documents have been given a fresh interpretation resulting in a dazzling array of papers in widely differing scales. The new palette continues to add to its rich narrative with the introduction of a strong yellow and handsome mid-indigo, whilst patinated tones and raised textures suggest the charm of antique hand blocking.
