An embroidered border that works beautifully with Queen Bee fabric but equally to trim a solid coloured texture. The ground is an elegant ottoman weave which adds to the tailored feel and the four colourways echo the colours of the Dragon Dance wallpaper. The name reflects its honeycomb pattern.
Very loosely based on recurring motifs within eighteenth century clothing, the glossy embroidered pattern contrasts with a linen ground. Three colourways add a glamorous touch to any room, and the striped format allows for many an imaginative use - wide borders along the leading edge of curtains made from our GINI damask for example.
As this fabric came off the loom, and the long weft yarns on the reverse were trimmed, we recognised something truly special had happened. As beautifully drawn as the original pattern is, with all the detail of the traditional tree of life delicately depicted with the finest jacquard work, the “reverse” is spectacularly modern and exciting.
Patterns inspired by the geometry of nature have been popular for many centuries, and ORBIT is a new and fresh interpretation. A galaxy of interlocking hexagons embroidered on a linen ground brings the technique of crewel work right up to date. A available either in citrine, marine blue on white or white on natural.
