A peek at Art Deco fabrics

By the mid-1920s, textile printing had become a very efficient industry. Thus, more yardage in an ever greater variety of designs was possible.
The Paris World's Fair in 1925 - Exposition Internationale des Arts D√©coratifs et Industriels Modernes - showcased the new 'modern' style that had developed in the post-WWI era.  The streamlined, avant-garde look was the theme of the exhibition and became a world-wide sensation that dominated decorative arts until WWII. Here are a few 1930s stylized floral interpretations for a first short peek at the Art Deco textiles:

This last piece is parasols, but is similar to the middle floral above.
