One of my favorite fabric lines is Manuel Canovas.
This company describes itself as:
“a French fabric house internationally renowned for the quality of its textiles and for its use of vibrant colour. Unmistakably European, the inimitable Canovas palette is the foundation of all the collections resulting in luxurious fabrics and wallpapers, instantly recognisable for their bold and unusual colour harmonies. Superior fabrics and innovative design make Canovas textiles perfect for residential and contract use.”
So what’s so great about them?
First of all there are the animal prints.
Subtle, bright fabulous.
Then there are the bright patterns.
And lastly the really amazing quality of the prints. These are absolutely fabulous in real life. Why are they so expensive? The thread count, the quality of the dyes, the patterns themselves, the number of colors in the pattern, and the exquisite clarity of the printing.
“Designer-Designer fabric,” Canovas is only available through interior designers and architects.
