Dispacus Fullonum or the Fullers Thistle was once widely used in textiles processing. The finishing of the cloth was called fulling and the teasel provided a natural comb and raised the nap on the fabrics.
A teasel gig was a curious invention mixing man made with nature combing the hand process of the pass and the precision of engineering. The machine consisted of 3000 prickly teasels in an iron frame powered by electricity. The teasels where carefully sourced from Somerset and a teasel man would travel from mill to mill renewing the teasels in the gig.
Where the Wild Teasels Were is a design tribute to the thousands of teasels used before being replaced by metal brushes in the 20th Century.
The making of this wallpaper echoes the teasel gig, combing the hand made with the machine.
