Valdese Weavers: Yes to Animal Prints!

Who designer doesn’t want to visit North Carolina, the “Mecca” of furniture design?And even if I have visited before, this time my furniture retreat had an extra bonus: a tour to Valdese Weavers, one of the largest domestic Jacquard loom weavers plant. It was surely a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the designer’s dream!
The fact that  I grew up in the textile business have made me develop a very special relationship with fabric; color combination and patterns speak to my heart. I had so much fun that I could barely stand it!.
And of course, I stumbled on the Animal prints; although I didn’t find any in production-I would love to find one right on the loom-, it was here and there in samples and new introductions for the next market. Touring around the designer’s offices, I found this Animal skin inspiration palette:

In the showroom, it was a special section with Animal print fabrics, and although they were a little too high, I was able to capture a few:

How fun!
