red-age-of-kingsAn exhibition of the works of the eminent 20th Century textile designer

This exhibition presents a selection of the works of the 20th Century textile designer Tibor Reich. After graduating from the University of Leeds in the early 1940s, he set up Tibor Ltd, which was to become one of the most innovative textile companies of the post war period. Clients included Concorde, Ercol, QE2, Lotus Cars, Coventry Cathedral and the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford- upon- Avon.

His most famous designs include “Age of Kings”, “Atournament”, “A History of Shapes” and “Flamingo” which are now highly regarded among textile collectors and connoisseurs. ┬áThe exhibition is selected from a collection on long term loan to ULITA from the Reich family.
