Like the best designs, this splendid print leaves so much up to your imagination. Is it a covey of fairies? A group of acrobats on unicycles? Curled up fern leaves in the rain?

This is a true multi-purpose fabric. Originally designed for home dec purposes, it's splendid for curtains, light upholstery, throw pillows, and the like. It also works wonderfully for very eye-catching clothing -- jackets, little slip dresses, and so much more. You'll love this design for fun accessories, too!

Designed by L-i-v-e Textiles, a group of women committed to "producing beautiful interior fabrics which are healthy for you and the environment."

At 4.8 ounces per square yard, the design has a horizontal repeat of 2.5", and a vertical repeat 2.5".It is printed in the US on GOTS-certifed, Ecocert-monitored flax linen fabric milled in China.

Linen is strong, absorbent, and antibacterial, and is prized for its smooth hand and its resistance to static and lint.

The traditional method of processing flax linen was called dew retting; it involved leaving the tough flax stalks in a pile in the moist autumn air to start breaking down into strands which could then be combed into fiber. In this modern but still chemical-free method, the stems are put into a large cement pool, misted with water, and covered. They are then rotated and misted every few days, simulating the humid conditions of the traditional method and facilitating the degumming process.

(In case you're unsure, Blue Haze is the blue with a purplish tinge; Elf Green is a light green with a slight bit of yellow; Pale orange is, well, orange with an almost peachy hint. Now you know!)

Buying a swatch will get you a piece of each fabric within the design style.
