The Allure of London’s Vintage Tube Textiles

In 1937, Enid Marx was selected by the London Passenger Transport Board to design the moquette seat fabrics for the London bus and tube seats. Her mission was to design patterns that could hide wear and dirt but also avoid the “dazzle” problem. On one of the oldest subway systems in the world, these designs have long accompanied generations.
