A textile lover's diary: Deco Pochoir

In the Art Deco era of the 1920-30's, the French rejuvenated the stencil screen process, called pochoir.  It was primarily used to create prints devoted to fashion, patterns, and architectural design.  Eugène-Alain Séguy (1889-1985) was a prominent French textile designer who published many folios using the pochoir technique, some noted below. I'd love to see these patterns reproduced today, wouldn't you? I see pillows!
