Take a traditional pineapple damask pattern, update it just enough to fit in the most modern of lifestyles, and you have this splendid print.

Originally designed for home dec purposes, this fabric is marvelous for curtains, light upholstery, throw pillows, and the like. It's such a large-scale design that you'll want to use it somewhere where the image can truly be appreciated: traditional floor-to-ceiling bed curtains come to mind, but that could be because I've been coveting them lately!

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 vertical repeat of 27.75" and a horizontal repeat of 9". 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.

Buying a swatch will get you a piece of each fabric within the design style. They're all labeled, so you'll know which is which.
