Our first new releases for 2017Feb 20, 2017

We're thrilled to be kicking off our 2017 releases in such an exciting way... new collections from Carlucci AND Andrew Martin! Carlucci's release is called Italian Touch and is going to market today (20 February). Maurishka by Andrew Martin will be released Monday 6 March.

Italy's rich design and textile heritage serves as inspiration for Italian Touch. Carlucci takes us on a grand tour of this inspirational country to create an unforgettable collection of luxurious and eclectic fabrics. Italian Touch's designs broadly fall into three groups: Luxury velvet; bold printed linen; and vintage-look plains. So something for everyone. See the collection page HERE.

Carlucci have also created a fascinating range of wallcoverings to complement the fabrics. See more HERE.

Next week I'll introduce Maurishka by Andrew Martin. It's a must-see for fans of handmade textiles. Stay tuned until the 6th!


A few thoughts on HeimtextilFeb 03, 2017

It's easy to be overwhelmed by Heimtextil. As one of the largest textile shows in the world it hosts over 2700 exhibitors from 60+ countries - so it's a behemoth! But moving through the exhibition halls there were a number of recurring themes I noted...

For upholstery it was all about texture: lots of heavy, chunky plains, semi-plains and tweed looks (think Chanel). Melange and bouclé yarns were prevalent, creating lovely rustic, hand-spun effects. I also saw many linen designs which had been finished to create wonderful vintage looks and textures. Embossed linen is another thing to look out for in 2017. Ditto for drapery options, both sheer and solid. Lots of textured and multi-coloured yarns about which make for some designs. We can't wait to show you our new 2017 drapery designs - coming soon!

Herringbone was still a big look, in both printed and woven looks.

Colourwise the 1990's beloved 'Hunter Green' was everywhere, along with more sophisticated emeralds and teals. There's still a lot of grey about and a lovely soft indigo. Terracotta is bubbling under and last year's blush has gone a little more peachy rather than pink.

The use of digital printing keeps growing. I've spoken about this before but it really does allow companies like us to offer in-house world exclusive designs, eg Shikara, Shangri-La and Zambesi. With digital printing anything is possible so I saw some very striking, huge-scaled designs... watch this space!
