Panjim – A Standout Pattern from Clarence House’s 60th Anniversary Collection
Clarence House’s 60th Anniversary collection features Panjim, which is based on 18th Century Indian mordant-dyed and resist-dyed cottons from the Coromandel coast created for the Golconda court circa 1700-1725.
Interestingly, the word chintz appeared originally in 17th Century East India Company. It seems to be derived from a north Indian word “Chint’ meaning speckled, sprayed or variegated; as in the background of the document that was used to create Panjim.
Clarence House’s reinterpretation of this unique design is printed on a supple yet coarse linen, which complements the naiveté and primitive spirit of the textile that inspired Panjim.
