The V&A has in its collection a unique album of 223 exquisite watercolour textile designs by William Kilburn. Born in Ireland, he moved to London and worked as a botanical illustrator before establishing himself in the textile industry and ultimately managing his own calico printing factory at Wallington in Surrey. Admired and imitated by his fellow designers, Kilburn created fantastic and pleasing patterns that never failed in quality and originality. All Kilburn's designs use floral motifs, accessorised with leaves, shells, ribbons or architectural elements, which demonstrate his great skill in pattern making, disguising the repeat in both complex and simple designs.
