This paper chain kit is printed with a design by Samuel Matley & Sons in 1824 and held in the V&A archive. The Matleys were a family of calico printers creating textile designs from their factory in Cheshire in the 19th century.


Each set contains 50 chain links with a pop-and-slot connection, meaning the decoration can be disassembled and used again year after year.


50 chain links constructing a 2.5 metre chain (each link 22.5 x 3.5cm; 8.8 x 1.3in)


Printed in the UK on 140gsm FSC paper
