MODERN FABRICS SAYS
Seriously, this fabric is crazy, it seems that every time Paul Smith designs a new fabric he pushes the fabric design envelope just a bit further.
This is a beautiful soft wool fabric, feels like a man's suit. The big stripe is more like GIGANTIC, the repeat is 93" WTF?! That's insane. The colors are very vivid as we have come to expect from Paul Smith.
Try this fabric for almost anything: upholstery, pillows, bedding, drapes and purses. Personally I think it would make some killer bedding, or a headboard.

His Website
Maharam is my favorite commercial textile manufacturer of them all! I think they are most innovative and rule braking, and since we carry the largest collection of Maharam reclaimed fabrics I get to see a lot of cool fabrics by them. Here is some background as written by Maharam on their website: maharam.com
Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant. Through the generations, Maharam evolved from a source of theatrical textiles for costume and set design in the 1940s to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles for commercial interiors in the '60s.
Maharam is recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design as a leading provider of textiles to architects and interior designers. Maharam embraces a range of disciplines, from product, graphic, and digital design to art and architecture.
Maharam textiles are included in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Stedelijk Museum, among others. Maharam is the recipient of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Design Patron Award (2007) for its longstanding support of design and cultural initiatives. Maharam Agenda was published in 2011.
