Medium and large carpet design sketches and design patterns dating from the 1900s to the late 1980s, a few of which specify contract details. There are a few designs by Mayers and Woodhouse, Kidderminster. Most are painted, but there are also a few colour photographs of designs. Most patterns consist of several seperate pieces of paper and have therefore been catalogued as single items with multiple parts. Where items are folded and stapled or clipped together the size recorded is that when folded. The majority have been given a design number, some are dated, while a few also note contract details.
