Take your island or Tiki vibe to 11 with this outrageously gorgeous handprinted silk fabric which, by the way, is even more gorgeous in person! Flowers, bubbles, starfish, plant matter, coronas, and abstract shapes combine in a lusciously organic design that will be equally at home as a garment, stretch over a canvas as art or a screen, or used judiciously for the right reupholstery project.
The hand printed aspect of this piece leaves a lovely surface texture that lends added elegance.
Sold as one 2.5 yard piece.
Would make a lovely relaxed sun dress or an elegant sheath dress. Or use it to set the tone for a Tiki or Boho room. This is a rare and unsurpassed piece for the discerning designer, artist, or anyone making a project.
