1960’s Summer Paradise with Sunburst Fabrics

My favorite season of the year is Summer so when I see bright and colorful fabric prints, I automatically get excited! Today’s Lookbook release is a special one because it’s our collection called Sunburst, that just transports you into a 1960’s mid-summer paradise. All the designs just make you want to sit by the poolside and soak up some rays like the print “Fun in the Sun Chill” which is the one featuring the ladies laying on towels, the fresh lemons, and the beach balls! I can already see so many summer projects being made that just call for these fabrics like tote bags, sunglasses covers, hats, picnic blankets- pretty much every essential you might need the next time you’re on vacation. 

Blog Collage Mood Board copySometimes it can be hard to explain in words what we envisioned for a collection! So above you’ll find a collage capturing the mood and color palette that will get you inspired! With just a couple of words, here is what Sunburst is all about: Poolside, retro, fun, bright. I feel like if this collection would be a song it would be The Beach Boys- “Good Vibrations,” you can hear it too, right? hehe.

Imagine all the dazzling summer projects you can make with all the prints from our Sunburst collection! Almost every print comes in a different colorway, which only means more fabric combinations and more fun.
