‘ Globetrotter ’ from the Cheap & Chic Collection0 1 19 August 2013
Cheap doesn’t necessarily mean poor. Chic is not necessarily expensive.
This a high design collection of fabrics, especially suited for Hospitality, at a small price.
Conceived and weaved in Italy, using only flame retardant yarns from Trevira, the collection is an insight on the design iconography of four different continents. Hence the name: Globetrotter.
Four designs for a total of nineteen fabrics, featuring a palette of natural colours with a hint of more audacious shades, like acid green, Ferrari red and luscious purple.
Our voyage pays homage to Italy with ‘Rinascimento’, modern damask. The following stop-over is Japan, where the antique families used a ‘Kamon’, an emblem to identify themselves. Finally, we move to Oceania and find inspiration in the tattoos of the Natives, like the ‘Moko’. Our last stage is America, where we pay a tribute to the ‘Navajos’.
