Item details

Monkshood (Aconitum nepellus) fabric in luxuriously soft velvet; wonderfully versatile and perfect for soft furnishings and clothing.

An original Art Deco-style pattern inspired by Agatha Christie's use of plant-derived poisons in her novels. This design is dripping in opulence. The majestic Monkshood is known as the 'Queen Mother of poisons' (or sometimes Queen) and considered to be the most poisonous plant in Europe. In Ancient Greece, Monkshood was believed to have been spawned from the saliva of the hound of Hades, Cerberus; the three-headed dog guarding the gates of the Underworld. Monkshood is so-named as it resembles the hood worn by medieval monks; other names include Wolfsbane and Devil's Helmet.⠀
