Artist Information

Sylvia Chalmers was a Scottish designer and contemporary of Lucienne Day. Chalmers won three medals for her textile designs shown at the Milan Triennale, shown in 1954. Chalmers was a student at The Glasgow School of Art in the late 1940s. She ran a textile printing company in Scotland called Tuar Fabrics for over twenty years, often selling her textile designs for fashion use to Elizabeth Eaton.

Twelve of Chalmers designs from the 50s and 60s are being digitally reproduced by the Centre for Advanced Textiles by kind permission of her surviving relatives, John and Rose Pegg.
