Another textured embroidery that brings so much dimension to the collection. Random squares of looped stitching are scattered over the cotton ground of the fabric giving it a wonderful tactile quality. The fresh ground and graphic quality work well as a contrast to the softer prints.
Stylised peacocks from Greek embroideries hold court on a magical tree of life as they feast their eyes on the butterflies and bugs amongst the foliage. A multi coloured table print that uses two sets of screens to achieve the large repeat, it includes white pigment highlights to add an extra dimension.
A phrase from the 1920s used to describe the best, the coolest... CAT’S PYJAMAS depicts a jumble of lions, tigers and leopards with their distinctive markings woven in one of our favourite qualities a pocket weave construction that gives a three dimensional look and a beautifully soft touch.
This fabric starts life as a soft linen weave, its irregular diamonds are woven into the construction. Once woven any yarns not tied in are cut, leaving a fringe effect around the pattern. Unlined it would make a wonderful semi sheer fabric but would also look pretty lined as a traditional curtain.
The name refers to the study of butterflies, and the circular shapes created by intertwining bands of colour reference both the butterfly’s markings as well as those of the leopard. Printed on a sturdy linen and cotton mix this fresh and open design would work in many a room.
A combination of embroidery and hand block printing, MAKING TRACKS combines many of the elements of the collection in one design. The graphic shapes are softened by the print mark of the hand block technique but still work well as a counterpoint to other more organic designs. Available in three enchanting colourways.
