From Little Things Big Things Grow
Our new fabrics are here! Introducing our new prints Grand Fanflower and Grand Hearts by Umbrella Prints. Whilst our customers are familiar with our Hearts and Fanflower textile prints (a perennial) we liked the idea of making them LARGE, we were told it couldn't work, but Carly and I made the potentially disastrous decision to do it anyway and to see what happened.
The effect is amazing and exciting for us because it creates a completely different tension and reading of the 'same' elements.......making new from familiar.
The drape of the fabric, beautiful curved on your body, leads these textiles to feel like more of an embrace than a kiss.
