I've been stopping in to visit this wonderful African textile at Christopher Filley's for the last several months. Of all the things the house needs, this is clearly not a priority, but I yearn for it just the same.
Jennifer Shorto, who has a fabric fascination herself, has developed a short line of fabrics based on Ivory Coast textiles that are long on style.
Graphic and great, you can find them at Michael Smith in LA or on-line here.
The advantage of checking out these wovens on-line is that you can pop over and see some of the wonderful antique textiles in Shorto's collection.
Like this chain-stitched silk on silk. Heavens. How many textiles can I hold in my heart?
