Story behind the souvenir

Story behind the souvenir

In 1965, Misha Black was commissioned to design a carpet for London Transport that would become a design icon.

The blue and green block design became known as Straub, after its designer, Marianne Straub.

This eye-catching design was intended to open the Victoria line in the late 1960s, but was not ready in time. So it was used on the Bakerloo, Northern and Piccadilly lines. Some buses also carried the Straub.Like ‘District’, it is synonymous with London’s design past and many of us look back on this particular carpet with real fondness and happy memories of our travels in the capital.
