a fabric rep from nyc came to my house recently while she was on the road. i buy most of my goods from them, a company that’s been around since the 1960′s. the former owner, now deceased was, like me, a real fabric whore. i don’t know how else to say it – i love and appreciate fine fabrics. apparently the owner made it his calling to go on long trips around the world buying textiles and shipping them back to nyc where they were put into a warehouse. soon the one warehouse was no longer big enough so a second bigger one was rented. housed in these are a huge archive of booty from his travels to italy, england, switzerland, the far east. many of them are now 20 or 30 years old but because of the quality in mint condition. when the rep opened the suitcases of samples it was like christmas. eery to think they’ve been in store for so long and now making their way into a blouse or dress i’m ecstatic to make and wear. the above prints are stunning in person. hand painted silk, every inch slightly different from the last.
