Jim’s Garden, from the very first collection, references Jim Thompson’s love of gardens in a painterly bouquet of roses mixed with more exotic tropical flowers. Two new colourways, yellow and turquoise flowers on a silver ground and pink with lilac on a rich charcoal ground. The lightly worn print mark on a rustic 100% linen gives it a subtly vintage feel.
Phulkhari is a graphic interpretation of Suzhani embroidery, available in two new colourways. Printed on a heavily textured and very durable cloth, Phulkari looks wonderful upholstered on furniture as well as opulent curtains. Now available in blue and white as well as a grape colourway.
Enter The Dragons
The original reference for this stunning fabric was a hand-knotted, seventeenth-century silk carpet from the Ningxia region in China. A majestic dragon is framed by generic borders that traditionally appear in many of China’s decorative arts. The dramatic scale of the design is countered by the sheer amiability of the painting of the dragon, and the slubby linen ground cloth gives interest and texture to the multitude of colours. Our most popular design since day one!
The original reference for this design recurs along the edge of the design ENTER THE DRAGONS but it has taken on its own life as a retro-reminiscent, stylish co-ordinate. Multi-coloured and printed on a linen union ground, CHINESE STEPS is an incredibly useful addition to any interiors scheme and is now available in two new colourways. The “Grisaille” version shares its colour pallet with one new colourway of ENTER THE DRAGONS.
Inspired by a tile pattern in the background of a painting, AGIASOS is a charming geometric “trellis” pattern, any hard lines softened by the watercolour painting of the original artwork. Two new fresh colourways, a soft duck egg and a true green complement the existing fabrics of this design.
Wedding Parade is an exuberant and large scale depiction of Indian elephants, dancers, musicians and horsemen processing across the width of fabric. Based on original sketches from Udaipur and an 1850s painting depicting a marriage celebration, it is huge fun and now available in the new “Midnight Party” colourway.
Loosely based on a traditional floral rug design, this interpretation, printed on a lightweight rustic linen, has an informality and flow that moves it away from the original. The shifting colors within the geometric background pattern are reminiscent of a knotted silk rug. Our new colourway features the reds and blues of a classic orientalist carpet.
