The Caravan Collection includes two new base cloth constructions (Sahara, Desert) and five decorative and coordinating patterns (Casbah, Bazaar, Berber, Medina, Nomadic), each presented in authentic color palettes to create distinctive living spaces.
Base Cloth Introductions The light structure of Sahara carries all the characteristics of vintage, hand-woven textiles with a perfectly imperfect surface texture. The fabric is available in Sand, Dune, Hemp, Caftan, Café, Carbon, Ivory and Salt. Desert features a richly textured construction with the subtle tones of desert sands defined by a simple stitch detail. Color offerings include Sand, Dune Hemp, Caftan, Camel, Café, Carbon, Mirage, Indigo and Henna.
Decorative and Coordinating Patterns Casbah, woven using the Desert construction, features a primitive ethnic stitch pattern giving it a vintage appearance. Playing up the tribal Moroccan influence is Bazaar, a lattice pattern designed using abstract geometric shapes. Berber is best described as a distressed small-scale diamond pattern. The uniquely woven Medina was inspired by original, handmade Moroccan stripes. Nomadic, the final fabric in the collection, features a classic, Moroccan wave diamond pattern most often seen in decorative flat weaves and rugs. All of the decorative fabrics in the Caravan Collection are available in the color ways of Carbon, Camel, Caftan, Café, Indigo and Henna.
