Built for a courtier of Henry VIII, Newark Park is a Tudor hunting lodge in the Cotswolds, where just a fragment of this small leaf design survives. The simple pattern featured two varying shades of green on a white satin background, creating the illusion of woven fabric and, interestingly, has been matched to a paper from the clock tower at Hampton Court Palace. The design derives its name from James Clutterbuck, who acquired Newark Park in the mid 18th Century, though this paper is early 19th Century in origin. Five contemporary colourways include softer contrasts and bolder primary shades on off-white, replicating the visual strength of the original design.
