OUR FAVOURITE CLOTH FABRICS

 

Cloth Designer Fabric Gumblossom 3 Surf

GUMBLOSSOM 3 - SURF
Corymbia ficifolia is a bloodwood tree that loves warm coastal areas. It caught my eye properly when I was on holiday in San Francisco. I stopped in my tracks when I noticed that all the trees lining the streets were flowering in a profusion of scarlet red. I recognised them - the red flowering gums from Western Australia. They looked fabulous and so at home on the city streets of California.

Cloth Designer Fabric Pod 7 Charcoal

POD 7 - CHARCOAL
There are these gone-to-seed calistamons near where I live. Bottle brushes with strings of dried seed pods hanging down over the path. Bushes gone wild on the walk to my studio.

Cloth Designer Fabric Banksia Marine

BANKSIA - MARINE
Marine is a new colourway for Banksia, a deep dark southern ocean blue. This new colourway is printed on unbleached soft linen. This linen is the perfect weight for curtains. The Banksia was taken from a series of Julie's lino prints based on her sketches of native plants growing in her studio garden.

Cloth Designer Fabric Stoney Blue Collar

STONEY BLUE COLLAR ON OYSTER
Stoney refers to the irregular shapes and surfaces seen in the NSW hinterland from a distance, pared down to its essence. Bar stripe is one stripe to fit all, or at least most. Not too thin, not too fat and in a bit of a classic. Two Up are waterholes, taken from Julie’s sketch book from years ago. Together - this mix of big and small scale prints in freshly coloured blues are reminders of the our beautiful waterfalls and waterways in all of their hues.

Cloth Designer Fabric Thatch 109 Grass

THATCH 109 - GRASS
Thatch was inspired by the weave of old rattan furniture. The scale, texture and multi directions of the design mean this print is very, very useful for upholstery. No pattern matching required, you see.

Cloth Designer Canopy 105 Grass On Oatmeal

CANOPY 109 - GRASS ON OATMEAL
