Italian Threads: MITA Textile Design 1926-1976

Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, London – 11:00 – 17:00

Italian Threads showcases 50 years of bold MITA commissions, encompassing the avant-garde movements of the day from Futurism to Abstract Expressionism.

Many of our staff come from commercial media or regimented academic backgrounds, the thrill then is to write from a place that is neither beholden to financial interests nor academic process but has the impact and appeal of the former and the insight of the latter.

We hope that to this day Trebuchet conveys our belief that smart fun creates joy.
