Delving into a Legacy: The Historic Connection between Sanderson and Disney
Sanderson's intricate relationship with Disney is a storied one that takes us back nearly a century to 1928. That is the year Mickey Mouse charmed the world as Steamboat Willie, becoming not just a cultural phenomenon but also an enduring symbol of childhood wonder. Passed down from generation to generation,
Mickey's magic has a timeless allure, an appeal that Sanderson instantly recognized. As the 1930s unfolded, we were privileged to collaborate with The Walt Disney Company.
At their Perivale factory, they began the thrilling journey of crafting an innovative range of wallpapers, followed by complementary children's fabrics, produced in Uxbridge, England.
This early partnership between Sanderson and Disney received high praise, even catching the eye of royalty. HRH the Duke of York, who would later become King George VI, visited our Perivale facility to witness firsthand our pioneering collaborative work with Disney.
Fast forward to today, and they have dug deep into the Sanderson archives to revive this historic magic. Using original documents, animation stills, posters, and brochures as our guide, we have reimagined a collection featuring classics like Mickey and Minnie Mouse and Snow White—each rendered with a touch of contemporary magic to captivate new audiences.
