I like to pair bigger prints with some solids for balance. But does that mean all solids are flat? Calm and rest for the eye can still have subtleties of design and texture. There is something so enjoyable in a little tonal and linear variation that brings interest and depth, like the character of a hand drawn line. It is in this drawn texture that I think of threads coming together to create “Thatched.”
Thatched was hatched (ha, ha!) Several collections ago, as a coordinate for Dear Mum. The little woven drawn lines became a texture print in grey, warm red, green and the Robin’s egg blue. It blended so well it wove its way into the next collection, and the next. Now Thatched is ready to claim its place as a basics line and make its OWN colour statement. Colours have been added to round out the palette to include browns, blues, oranges, burgundy and maroon. Perhaps you keep Thatched as a subtle texture print to balance out your prints and be a background fabric or blender. Or you may decide to play with the combinations and relationships of colour families and groupings in colour studies with saturated splendour. Let your world of colour mix with the texture of drawn line, the feeling of linear weaving. We are, after all, makers. We have interwoven lives and notice the small textures and details that make life richer. Lean in and notice the detail. Rejoice in the imperfections. This was made by hand and heart.
