Furnishing fabric with birds nest, 1830. Unknown artist. Roller-printed cotton. England. Via V&A
In 1783 Thomas Bell took out a patent for printing textiles from engraved metal rollers. The circumference of the roller limited the height of the repeat but the process was fast. In 1794 the Jouy printworks in France, for example, were roller-printing 5400 metres of fabric per day, which was the equivalent to the work of 42 block-printers. V&A
