George Criscuolo fitting an evening gown of Crysede silk, St Ives, Cornwall. Around 1927

The gown is printed with the Pastoral design, fabric printed with the Zennor design is draped on the chair to the left and the fabric on the wall to the right bears the Isles of Scilly design. The model was Phyllis Hicks, later manageress of the St Ives shop and married to Tom Firth, one time chief dyer. Alec Walker left Mirfield, Yorkshire, in 1918 to set up a small experimental textile factory in Newlyn where wood-block printed silk fabrics and garments were designed and manufactured. By 1925 the Crysede venture had become a successful craft industry, employing many local people, which required larger premises. In 1926 the works moved to the Island Works housed in the former Western Pilchard cellar at the base of The Island in St Ives. Photographer: Unknown
