Timorous Beasties

Timorous Beasties

Timorous Beasties was established in Glasgow in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who met studying textile design at Glasgow School of Art. Today, the studio is a diverse operation and has emerged as a multi-award-winning, internationally acclaimed icon. Timorous Beasties’ work embodies a unique diversity of pattern, ranging from design that echoes a golden age of copperplate engraving (a time-honoured classic is the Thistle range; or Merian Palm superwide wallpaper) to examples of a distinctly edgy nature, an elegant transgression, a display of chic irreverence.

    Totem Damask is a kaleidoscopic synthesis of arabesques, splats and florals, structured around a geometric ‘digital’ stem.

Familiar yet surprising, Totem Damask epitomises Timorous Beasties’ radical approach to pattern. Digitally printed.
