Local girls modelling Crysede silk dresses, St Ives, Cornwall. Around 1927

Phyllis Hicks, later manageress of the St Ives shop and married to Tom Firth, one time chief dyer, is second from left. Designs include Dancing Flower (left), Madron Carn (second from left) and Confetti (seated). Crysede linen curtains printed with the Primitive design hang in the background. 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
