The label displays a poppy design from the Arts and Crafts period of the early 1900’s. The design came out of the Gustave Stickley craftsman school and was meant to be stitched on to pillow cases and bed spreads with the idea that the poppies would help you sleep. Ann Johnson, one of Qupé’s original shareholders, found the design in a clip art book in the public domain. Ann sent a copy of the design to Bob along with about a hundred other poppy designs that she had researched. She had placed this design on the top of the stack as her favorite and the minute Bob saw it he knew it was the one. The stylized poppy also looks a little bit like a wine glass, and in fact Bob altered the design a bit to look more like a poppy.
