Hand Printed Fabrics: By Carolina Irving Textiles

Carolina Irving is a former editor of House and Garden magazine. Her dream was to have her own collection of textiles which became a reality in 2006. Her exciting collection is softly colored and hand printed on hemp and linen. I love the combination of prints and colors that she uses as they fit well into many types of decor. She chose fabrics with an aged handmade look with a slightly old appearance. And she never uses beige! See fabrics from her collection below that has been inspired by her travels and her educational background in 17th century Italian art. To the trade.

Pattern: Mimosa Vine: This beautiful pattern features a silhouette of a mimosa vine in a large scale print. Hand printed on 100% hemp. Colorways: Viola, Green, Yellow and Delft (chair fabric).

Pattern: Kandyli - My favorite! This fabric was inspired by a Turkish embroidery with colors that look like they have been faded in the sun. Hand printed on 100% hemp and comes in two colorways. Rose/Blue or Sienna/Olive (pillow fabric). See Rose/Blue below.

Rose/Blue Kandyli.
