Fabulous fabric finds

I really debated whether to post this (warning blatent self-promotion follows). I was/am concerned about boring you, or worse annoying you, with what is basically a post about my Etsy shop. However, it is no secret that I have a shop and since I do sell fabric, I thought that some of you may be interested.

One of my favourite fabric suppliers is a small textile company, Baan Thai, based in Chiang Mai. Not being overly fond of prints, I find that textured fabrics can add interest to what would otherwise be quite plain garments and this place does lots of nice textured cottons. They have also recently created a remnants section, which I discovered with the lovely Lara. So I snapped up some of the more interesting pieces. The captions are linked and will take you to the shop if you want to know more.

Black and charcoal textured cotton

This is so lovely and light and sheer. Yes, you’d probably need a lining.

Black and grey geometric print

My idea of a great print. Not too colourful and very geometric.

Black shirred cotton

I’ve never actually seen anything like this before. And obviously it isn’t the best to photograph.

Blue and grey textured cotton

Fabulous muted colours

Silver grey small seersucker

This actually has been dyed with a bit of a distressed look. They aren’t all creases.

Stunning stripes

This cotton voile is so vibrant with a great mix of colours.

Dark red textured cotton

This deep red has a self-check for textural interest.

Striped seersucker

Large seersucker in summer stripes.

Lots of spots

This is actually double gauze and the spots are a steel grey/blue.

So what do you think about posts like this? 
Are you happy to see them every few weeks (after all it is fabric)? 
or 
Do you never want to see another (after all it is just an ad)?

  1. That geometric print is good, isn't it? It took some willpower to put that in the shop and not in the stash:)
    I looked for the purple colourway of it that you liked but couldn't see it. And yes my pledge to avoid black is similarly being tested.

  2. I love seeing posts like this. Always happy to look at fabric – and I'm not going to see things like this in local shops. You have an Etsy shop and I don't think it's unreasonable to post about it. : )

  3. Gawd, I want to see posts like this ALL THE TIME! I just DROOL over those fabrics – especially because I have seen some of them in real life! You know that I will be patronising your etsy shop, don't you? I think that I need that geometric print in particular (despite my pledge to avoid black….)
