Well my meeting went well yesterday. The fabric man he came, he went and he left me with a huge amount of fabric which I am in danger of drowning under. Paul is already making noises about having to reinforce the ceiling, hehehe!
I have many bags (too many to get in one photo), in each bag is many rolls of samples and in each roll is many fabrics. These fabrics date from the 1800's up to the 1940's and were bought at an auction in Paris. They are beautiful, so many different designs. Some look very contemporary and wouldn't look out of place in Habitat or Heals. It just goes to show how nothing is really original. We have been taking ideas/inspiration from history.
I must be off. I have a lot to sort out and sift through. There are sateens, moires, popelines, cretonnes and velvet flocks to tend to.
