The design archive consists of 2,000 design sketches and 3,800 design drawings and patterns which were used as a working design archive by Stoddard International plc. These design papers include pencil and chalk sketches, ink drawings and tracings, and painted point patterns. They are accompanied by 8.75 metres of design related records which include photographs of carpets,  lithographs, and label books.

      Hi Ryan,

      The designs are not currently available for viewing as we’re busy cataloguing them. In the autumn you’ll be able to access them through University of Glasgow Archive Services: http://www.glasgow.ac.uk/archives. Please do be aware though that we don’t have every design produced, and not everything we have will be available to view online.

      Do get in touch with us in the autumn.

      Best, Clare

    I would like to know if you have designs by Anne Malcolm, an elderly friend who has sadly died. She worked for Stoddarts in 1955 and I understand that her designs are still being used.
