This classic upholstery fabric has a varying checkerboard chenille design which perfectly complements many of the more decorative qualities in the collection.

SINGITA PARADE is named after the famed safari lodge in South Africa which is host to many elephant herds. This design originated from the Travers archive and has been reintroduced as a traditional screen print. From afar it may appear to be an allover organic design, but as you move closer, the playful elephants come into focus. Printed on a very fine 100 per cent cotton cloth, this design requires a very patient printing process. First the rarity of the line work inside the elephants is printed by fine pigment. Then, in order for the metallic outline to stay together, the printer must wait for the ink on the fabric to fully dry before printing. Offered in its documentary coloration with Gold and Black, SINGITA PARADE is also available in Champagne and Taupe, Bronze and Green and Silver and Blue.
This exceptional rustic chevron design has dimension and movement running throughout the fabric.

MAASAI MARA is named for one of Africa's top protected wildlife destinations in Kenya's flagship conservation area.
CAPE FLORAL is a nod to the magnificent Cape Floral Region in Southern Africa, one of the world's most diverse floral areas.

The density of the pattern is offset by a subtle leaf silhouette which sits recessed in the background. CAPE FLORAL is offered in four gorgeous colorations, including a rich warm neutral with Saharan camels, taupe and terracotta and a bold peacock-inspired colourway with deep emerald, leafy green, navy and periwinkle.

Available in four colours, this toile is truly one of a kind.
The craftsmanship involved in creating BOSQUE MOIRE is passed down from generations before. The warp and weft are first yarn dyed and then woven to create a subtle ottoman weave effect. The fabric is then fed through cylinders that determine and press the moir_ pattern onto the cloth, ensuing in an incredibly elegant, organic pattern. BOSQUE MOIRE is available in six colours, from pale ivory and oyster, to soft blush and sky, finishing with a dusty patina and rich emerald.
