KALAHARI COLLECTION
Autumn 2013

Our offerings of large width linen fabrics draw inspirations from the vast plains of the Kalahari Desert. From the misty dawns our translucent sheers capture the first rays of sunlight. Through the day, as the sun rises above the arid savannah, reflections and shadows cast on sands, rocks and trees give rise to subtle hues and patterns. These precious moments are captured in seven different weights and translucencies across our curtaining collection.
