Notes

Annan Fabrics was established as a screenprintery in Mosman in 1941, and operated for 14 years.
It was set up by Nan Mackenzie (now Mrs Alexandra Kirkwood) and Anne Outlaw.

Alexander Mackenzie 'Nan' or 'Nance' (1912-1998)
Anne Outlaw (nee Simpson) (b. 1892; arrived Australia 1922; d. 1991)

Mackenzie was the designer, Outlaw managed the business and both screenprinted the fabrics. They were often commissioned to make textiles for public buildings, in a manner that said something about Australia. Mackenzie drew on Australian wildlife and flowers for her designs, and also, in response to interest of the time, adapted Aboriginal motifs or designer using Aboriginal themes.
