There are plenty of fabrics available through showrooms that I really like – but there are others that I LOVE and need to hold onto, usually in memo form, for long periods of time. Three of my current top ten (or so) have this great chartreuse color — a color that’s both ugly and beautiful, and more enticing because of that tension. This first one I have cherished for years now — it’s from one of my favorite companies Raoul Textiles. The second is from Manuel Canovas. And then more subtly, the “Marrakesh” pattern from the always exciting company — Mokum.
