Pattern Story

Desert Sun is the most popular design in its collection. The inspiration was drawn from Dashiki fabric – a colourful patterned fabric from West Africa sold & worn widely on the Kenyan coast. Dashiki is steeped in culture & history. It was popular in the 1960’s – so the fabric has a deep bohemian feel to it.

This fabric is very versatile and works well as curtains, upholstery, larger throw cushions and larger lampshades. It combines well with Desert Wind.
