Established in 1982 by Jean Monro, daughter of the famous decorator of the 1920s Mrs Geraldine Monro, Jean decided to reproduce and market the favourite designs used by her mother over the years and Turnell & Gigon took up the reins in 1998.

Polyanthus (on which Auricula is based) was the first design to be produced by Jean Monro and which soon became a perennial favourite.

The main flower is a Primula Auricula surrounded with small clusters of rosebuds and leaves on a striped background.
JM-711 apricot, olive green JM-710 stone, green, lime (pictured left) Composition Width 130cm

100% linen Repeat 91cm (cut by repeat)
This handsome, grand design which dates from the second half of the 19th Century, features a rather formal bouquet of roses, surrounded by strap=work, tassels and ribbons.

100% Cotton Chintz Repeat 83cm
A classic English garden bouquet is the central motif of this chintz, beautifully balanced with a smaller bunch of cyclamen and set against a double stripe in the background.

DONOVAN’S CHINESE LADY JM-621 original Composition Width 128cm
100% Linen Repeat 81cm

A simple fern design printed tone on tone on a textured linen.
JM-1010 duck egg JM-1013 chinese yellow Composition Width 137cm
100% Cotton Chintz Repeat 64cm
This exquisite design is very much a European view of Chinoiserie. Faithful in all respects to the very fine detailed “sketch”, this multi-coloured design shows a beautiful Chinese lady beneath a parasol, literally on a bed of roses. Traditional Chinese motifs such as the tea urn appear, with a more western interpretation of floral swags and scrollwork in the surrounding cartouche.

100% Cotton Chintz Repeat 59cm

HEALE HOUSE JM-805 ivory Composition Width 137cm
100% Glazed Cotton Repeat 133cm
This lovely design comes from the famous country house after which it is named, part of which dates back to 1553.

80% Cotton 20% Linen Repeat 56cm
This design is taken from the original sketch for a woodblock design of 1876. The colours were only “roughed in” on the sketch so new colourings have been produced in nature’s shades.
JM-1202 aubergine (pictured right) JM-1201 teal JM-1203 tropical Composition Width 137cm
100% Cotton Repeat 75cm
First printed in 1950, Hemingford is a more modern design with an abstract floral print rather than the more literal botanical representation, typical to Jean Monro.

100% Linen Repeat 92cm (half drop, cut by repeat)
A very handsome, large-scale bouquet of Hollyhocks hand-blocked on heavy 100% linen. The “document” fent was a hideous colour and has not been reproduced. 146 hand blocks are used to print each repeat. Probably mid 19th century.

JM-1035 blues JM-1036 pinks Composition Width 137cm
100% Cotton Chintz Repeat 41cm
This design, from a wood-block of 1853, has been given a fresh, naturalistic colouring. The original “sketch” was so dirty as to make the colours unworkable for such a brightly coloured flower as the Sweet Pea. The fabric was named to celebrate 75 years of fine decoration at Mrs Monro Ltd.
JM-1195 red/green (cotton, pictured left) JM-1196 red/green (linen) Composition Width 145/142cm

JM-E8771 taupe on cream Composition Width 140cm
100% Cotton Chintz Repeat 101cm
A quiet palette of creams, whites and olives distinguish this gentle glazed chintz of moss roses. The colouring is almost certainly of a much later date than the classic early Victorian design but gives it a contemporary feel today.

Taken from a document found in a house in France, Odette is a deceptively simple design of stylised tulips against a trail of Lily of the Valley.

JM-1160 green JM-1161 antique blue JM-1162 rose JM-1163 canary (pictured on this page) JM-1164 sea green Composition Width 124cm

100% Cotton Chintz Repeat 45.6cm
The first design to be produced as the Company was founded. Botanically the name is obviously an error as the main flower is clearly a Primula Auricula. However, the groups of flowers surrounded with small clusters of rosebuds and leaves on a moiré striped background have become a perennial favourite used the world over.

TULIPA LINEN JM-1117 taupe Composition Width 136cm
60% Cotton 40% Linen Repeat 101cm

This Edwardian design was first printed from a water-colour painting of 1905. A spray of Daffodils, Lilac and Violets against a wide picot-edged ribbon with small bunches of Snowdrops, make this a lovely fresh spring-like fabric.

Willa is a stunning beautifully drawn large scale hand blocked floral. Taken from a 19th Century document this design is printed on 100% slub linen using 86 blocks and 22 colours per colour way. The very soft painterly colour graduation of Willa is achieved by layering one colour at a time. The end result is a pattern which produces a 3 dimensional look which cannot be achieved by any other type of printing.
