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.
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.
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)?
Do you never want to see another (after all it is just an ad)?
