The color of the week this week is tan…
not brown, not beige, tan.
Tans can be warm or cool,
moving along the color spectrum from more blue to more yellow.
So, when choosing a tan, it is really important to get a sample
to review it in your own light,
to make certain it is going to give the wanted effect.
Several years ago we brought in several paisley fabrics that have a retro, or mid century, feel to them. These are handprints. That means the screens for printing are actually moved along the fabric, by people. They move the screens along the length of the fabric, registering the placement of the screen so that the pattern is seamless, and pull the squeegee across the screen by hand, forcing the dye through it.
