Did I ever mention that I once had a room full of fabrics? Collecting beautiful fabrics was once an obsession ( Yeh, a bit of hoarder I admit). But I got over it quickly when we moved into a very small house…
Still always on the look out for unique fabrics, I came across Adire African Textiles. This gallery in London, UK, is dedicated solely to exploring the vintage textile traditions of sub-Saharan Africa. They work with partners throughout West Africa to source exceptional museum quality textiles for clients that include leading museums worldwide, private collectors, and interior designers.
Do you remember the post on Colour Forecasting – Tribe? Well, I reported that one of the strong trends for colour and texture in 2011 will be very African inspired.
What a great way to interject texture into your décor than by purchasing original fabric straight from Africa. I particularly love the Mbuti Barkcloth from the Congo.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
