In general, I’d consider myself a modernist…but I have to admit that I love the idea of traditional and global prints as accent pieces to add something unexpected and unique.
It’s no wonder this is a trend for 2011. The patterns tend to be nostalgic bringing a sense of comfort and a relaxed quality. The deep colors from natural dyes…the imperfect perfection of hand crafting.. and the fact that you could have something that’s one of a kind…bring it on!
