The Magic of Fabric

Jun 10, 2019by Brigitte Farrell

I’ve been a fabric junkie for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, my Mom and I spent endless hours wandering the local fabric stores touching and draping the fabrics to see how they hung. We didn’t have much money, so we frequented the sale table and bought anything fabulous, even if we weren’t sure what we were going to make with it.

This year I’ve gone back to my roots of wandering fabric markets. In the past 3 months, I’ve rambled the halls of textile sourcing shows, mills and factories from the US to China to Paris.  I love the elegant drape and smooth finish of our Faceplant Bamboo® jammies but how much champagne can one girl drink? I mean, surely, there are OTHER fabulous fabric options out there, right? It turns out, when it comes to fabric, you have to MAKE the magic. In my travels this spring, I think I’ve found the elements, now we’re working on putting them together. Stay tuned my fellow fabric fanatics…. There’s magic coming your way in a few months.
