Phyllis Baron and Dorothy Larcher designed and produced printed textiles in the 1920s and 30s, setting up their own business, specialising in indigo dying. The business came to an end during the Second World War due to shortages in materials. Their prints were made using lino cuts which were block printed. The colour use in their designs is simplistic using only one or two colours in a design but the earthy ness to their colour choices and the darker blues, browns and greys have been shown to be difficult to reproduce digitally.
