Sixteenth plate of album with 20 pochoir pattern plates with designs for textiles and carpets, titled "Suggestions pour étoffes et tapis: 60 motifs en couleur" (Suggestions for stuffs and carpets: 60 color motifs), created by E.A. Séguy and published in Paris by Massin & Cie in 1923. The plate contains three designs with semi-abstract motifs inspired from nature, executed with lively colors. The first design is made up of strips of alternating branches with leaves, colored with black and purple, and with silver dots, separated by bundles of semi-abstract flowers, colored with gold, silver, and dark purple, on a light brown ground. The second design is made up of semi-abstract flowers with large, light brown petals, and oval-shaped anthers, colored with silver and framed by green ovals, on a purple ground. The third design is made up of scattered leaves, colored with green and black, and semi-abstract flower buds with purple and brown petals, and silver and black pistils, on a dark greenish-blue ground with thin, vertical, silver stripes.
