1904 marks the beginning of fauvism. Henri Matisse – alongside Paul Signac – discovers Saint-Tropez. Joyous and full of life, their paintings overturn the conformities of the 19th century by the boldness of their colour.
PLACE DES LICES is a modest work by the artist, yet it is a destination not to be missed in the little fishing village. Coloured façades, pink country houses, blue shutters, botanical gardens, flower markets, artists’ workshops, openair cafés with music and dancing, bakers’ shops and interior decoration boutiques evoke the French art de vivre on mild summer days. PLACE DES LICES is embroidered on a linen-cotton blend. The richness of the stitches – feather, satin and tatami – attest to the delicacy of the print that inspired it and the quality of the embroidery. With elegance and discretion, palm, pine and strawberry trees fade into pearl white, charcoal grey, saffron yellow and sky blue.
Named for the luxury beachfront resort on the Island of Barbados, SANDY LANE is a reinterpretation of the classic trellis. A harmonious balance of viscose embroidery with jute cording makes this tactile fabric very special.
The jute cord used is in its most natural form and a specially engineered system was required to achieve this technique of embroidery. It has been finished for an added softness and relaxed drape.
LONGWOOD WEAVE is the textured upholstery plain you have been waiting for! Three different yarn colors are carefully dyed and then warped in a very specific manner to create an end result that, though very intentional, appears wholly organic.
It has a dry, all natural cotton composition, and is available in nine colors that layer beautifully throughout the Travers portfolio.
Timeless in its interpretation, ARBOR IKAT is a printed tonal stripe with irregular edges and a rhythmic repeat; a true testament to traditional woven ikats. Printed on a cotton and linen blend, each color world offers a range of casts and values which make it an excellent bridge to any room.

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.
