Diagonal black and grey plaid with copper accents across an eggshell background.
From the Eastham collection, inspired by the Cape Cod summers - the smells of cut grass and pine needles, the warmth of the sun and the sound of crickets and sneakers on gravel.
Denyse Schmidt is one of our favourite fabric designers. Her designs are simple, timeless and ambiguous, which allows them to traverse diverse styles and eras without looking like an imposter. The colours are generally muddy and unusual, which gives an authentic retro mood. The base cloths are beautiful quality and a cream colour, rather than white, so it feels like a precious piece from your nana's stash before you've even started sewing.
Denyse's designs are terrific for completing and repairing vintage quilts and equally fabulous as the confident star of retro-inspired clothing.
