New Fabric: Black and Ivory Woven Etches

We have found some delicious new fabrics that will be debuting soon on our website. In the meantime, we’ll introduce them to you on the Blog! Our first, and one of my favorites, is this great woven black and ivory fabric that looks etched and feels wonderfully textured. One of the best parts – you can reverse this fabric for very versatile, complementary looks. For example, in the Ruffle Tote below, the body is made with the black side of the fabric and the handles and pull ties are made with the white side of the fabric! If you like this fabric, you can design any of our bags with it before it’s on our website! Contact emily@elementalthreads.com and say you want your new bag in this fabulous new fabric!

New fabrics: quilted waterproof Burberry, oh my!

stackedburberryfabrics

I visited my favorite fabric shop in Boston, Winmil Fabrics, and found quilted Burberry fabric that’s 100% waterproof! What a coup! Water has no chance against this fabric — it slides right off.  Burberry used this fabric for rain coats and then sold the unused fabric. So, not only is it waterproof, it’s also eco-friendly because we are using remnants. Plus the fabric comes in these delicious, rich colors which pair into dozens of beautiful color combinations!

I really love the way these fabrics look together, the colors complement each other so perfectly and the quilting adds a nice texture.  Check out this Striped Wristlet for inspiration…
