THE SEA, THE SEA....
Sea-scapes and other watery impressions are a current theme in fabric design. Inspired in part by technological advances in digital printing - where full-scale paintings can be transferred to fabric - which in turn inspire designers to reference artists lik...

Sea-scapes and other watery impressions are a current theme in fabric design, inspired in part by modern printing techniques such as spray-dying (remember spray dyed jeans in the 90's - they found a better way to use the technique!) and digital printing, wi...

KID'S FABRICS THAT ADULTS WILL LOVE!
I have never been a fan of gender-specific, cutsey kiddie's fabric - just as I've never believed in baby-talk.  The best advice I was ever given in the early years of child-rearing, was 'kid's just want to grow up - so let them do as much as they can themse...
