An embroidered border that works beautifully with Queen Bee fabric but equally to trim a solid coloured texture. The ground is an elegant ottoman weave which adds to the tailored feel and the four colourways echo the colours of the Dragon Dance wallpaper. The name reflects its honeycomb pattern.
As this fabric came off the loom, and the long weft yarns on the reverse were trimmed, we recognised something truly special had happened. As beautifully drawn as the original pattern is, with all the detail of the traditional tree of life delicately depicted with the finest jacquard work, the “reverse” is spectacularly modern and exciting.
Patterns inspired by the geometry of nature have been popular for many centuries, and ORBIT is a new and fresh interpretation.
