7 UNIM1987.1 Textile A sample of Fortuny fabric from the New York City, Fifth Avenue, townhouse of Harry Harkness Flagler. Harry was the only son of late 19th century oil tycoon, Henry Morrison Flagler. Flagler made his fortune partnering with Rockefeller to create Standard Oil. This fabric was designed by Italian textile designer, Mariano Fortuny. Fortuny was an expert at dying fabric, and delved deep into the complex technique called “katagami” – a Japanese fabric printing process. Bending it to the needs of industrial manufacturing, he came to patent his own method. This textile is an example of this process. UNIM1987.1 (Textile) image
