    • Isn’t it interesting? Notice the regimentation in the 30s when Stalinism was in full force and the suprematist point of view in the “decorative sateen 20s and 30s” near the bottom.

  1. Interesting. Wonder how many were wearing those fabrics when they died in Stalin’s famine, during his purges, or in his GULAG.

  2. Öh.. Celebrating the products of the ultra-socialist dream even in fabrics…

    Sort of shows the kind of reatrds people were back then.

    Our neighbor here in Helsinki (in 1980) was a welder in a shipyard. He had the red LADA, the sideburns, the heavy eye glasses and he used to bring us those horrible chockolate cakes with the text “mocba” on the case. If I remember correctly, the price was printed on the case.

    He must have had curtains made of that kind of fabric.

    (By the way, the other neighbour worked as a driver to move LADAs from the port to the sale facilities. They used to have a race who would be first there on 1st gear flat out. Man, those LADA engines could take punishment.)

  3. I think some of the prints ae superb, I would love the long 20s style dress with the “Armure, 1931” or “Industry. Chintz, 1930”. That would be so stylish!

  4. These are wonderful prints. The colors and patterns make current fabrics seem boring. I’d love to have a Hawaiian shirt made of any of these!

  5. these are incredible. there’s modernism and geometric/abstract styles decades before they were ‘invented’. the Transport. Printed cotton, 1927, tractor, and Decorative chintz, 1924-1925 are particularly great.

  6. These are wonderful pictures. Thank you very much. Would you object if I tried to reproduce some on Spoonflower — not for profit and with full credit to you, of course?

  7. These are fantastic. I wonder how widespread their use was. Do you know if any of the actual fabric still exists or only the pictures?

  8. Hello. Does anyone know where I can find examples of these for sale? Is anyone reproducing these designs? Who owns the designs? I am a collector and would like to acquire good examples. Thanks in advance.
