‘Swakara’ is based on the original indian ink artwork drawn from a vintage persian lamb fur.
It forms part of the signature Fur Drawing collections, which feature a hybrid aesthetic between figurative and textural. The structure of these organic textures invokes something mysterious, whilst translating cultural associations of opulence and luxury.
You can see images of the original drawing here (opens in new tab).
Swakara is available on contract grade cotton velvet. The soft texture of the Velvet mimicks the texture of the original fur, it complements the drawing and turns it back into something tactile.
The cotton velvet creates an illusion of depth, and its tactile feel resembles the softness of fur. The sumptuous texture of the fabric and the quality of the print create a true pleasure for eye and touch.
The poly velvet is an attractive, bold looking and sturdy fabric with a pearly sheen.
