Striped towelling top
Frank Carpay began experimenting with screenprinting on white towelling in the early 1960s. He worked with his wife Carla to make and sell beach towels printed with modern motifs and geometric patterns. The success of the prints prompted the Carpays to invite their friend, Robert Leek, to design a range of beach clothing using their printed towelling. Robert's sister Else van den Muysenbergh modelled Carpay garments during a photoshoot in 1965.
