The model for Aloha was a Tivoli showgirl and the rug to her left was made by Rose out of scraps of material cut into strips and pulled through a net. This type of material was called Milanese silk, a fine warp-knit fabric with interlocking stitches, made from silk or (now) rayon. Fancy pyjamas made out of this material during the 1930s were very popular. The original etching is extremely rare as the edition is only fifteen.
