Soviet Fabrics from the 1920s and 1930s

There are nods to Russia’s imperialist past, with the lush colors and the style of the imagery in some designs. The modern communist nation is clearly visible throughout. The CCCP and red star are common motifs. The other main image is modernization: factories, trains, machinery, and hardworking citizens carrying everything through. Unfortunately these colorful and aesthetic fabric patterns were replaced soon enough with more streamlined communist propaganda designs.
