Crayford, once a small market town in Kent, traces its connection with textile printing to the 1730s. In the late 19th century, all GP & J Baker production was from the Crayford site. Initially the company printed by hand block, producing many of the classic designs with which it is still associated today. This outstanding collection draws from the treasures of the GP & J Baker archive and provides distinctive and original decorating solutions. The magnificent designs of the Crayford Collection have withstood the test of time by being able to adapt to changing color trends and evolving furnishing styles.
