Rachel was inspired by James Leman, an 18th century Huguenot silk weaver and pattern designer, whose designs were adapted to adorn our building. His incredible skill both as a designer and a manufacturer of bold, bizarre patterns are what drew Rachel to these designs. Rachel first came across James Leman at a talk by V&A curator, Olivia Horsfall-Turner, here at the museum, about the extraordinary Leman Album.
