Les Indiennes

Posted on Fri, 9 Mar 2007 by midcenturyjo

Sometimes I wish I wasn’t addicted to my mid century vibe. Sometimes I wish I was a little bit Provencal, a little bit faded days and cicadas thrumming in the hot summer sun. Then I would surround myself with the fabulous offerings from Les Indiennes. A complex “kalamkari” process uses hand carved wooden blocks and natural dyes.They have a deliberate faded quality evocative of antique linens.

I love the casual feeling of these fabrics. Great colours too. Would be amazing in a cottage (that I don’t own. Dream on sister, dream on.)
