The London branch of the vast textile repository known as The Design Library has upped sticks to Fitzrovia, former stomping ground of the Dylans (Bob and Thomas) and Virginia Wolf, just to mention a few artists. Referenced here many times before, the library now holds over seven million documentary textile designs, ranging from mid-18th to late- 20th-century examples. These may be licensed or sold to contemporary designers for inspiration. The new address is Wells Street and appointments are required.
