MODERN FABRICS SAYS
Weird green felt embroidered with copper-like trees (they look more like arrows to me). I got to say that this colorway is very unusual. This fabric is why you shop with us, because pieces like this only show up on our website once in a blue moon! And I don't think we will see this one again. Perfect for pillows, upholstery and even some cool fall/winter apparel. Send me some pics when you are done!
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.
Kvadrat is for mid-century lovers! Kvadrat sell their fabrics in the USA under the Maharam brand. Most of their fabrics are made in Denmark or New Zeland and are at least 50% wool. They are the perfect choice for redoing MCM furniture not only in style but also in a fabric respectful to the time period.
