    I noticed you had posted about the film ‘HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN TEMPLETON CARPETS’ preserved here in the Scottish Screen Archive, with a clip viewable on our website. You might also be interested in a film GLASGOW GREEN TO BENDIGO – the whole film has been digitised and you can view it here http://ssa.nls.uk/film.cfm?fid=2209
    Watch out for c 6.49 mins in, and an example of some eyewatering 70s graphics!! Enjoy…

    What a lovely film and so nice to see a clip of my father – Gavin Hamilton. I had no idea he had been recorded! Thank you.

    My father Richard “Dick” Forsyth was a designer at Templetons for nearly 30 years and remember going to the designing room as a child. He met my mum at work and my uncle John Forsyth worked in the factory. Great film, really lovely to see.

    Hi there
    I believe I have a Mary Quant carpet on a bedroom floor. Is this of interest to you. It is the geometric squares design.
    Kind Regards
    Karen Gillam

      Dear Karen,

      Thanks for your comment. I hope you like your Mary Quant carpet!
      At Archive Services, we only hold the business records of the company, and the carpet designs – not the carpets.

      Your local auction house or antiques dealer may be interested in the carpet if it is in good condition.

      Best wishes,
      Clare Paterson

      Karen. My father Gavin Hamilton was Chief Designer at Templeton’s and worked with Mary Quant designing carpets in the 70’s.
