Kennett Square, Pa. -A new collection of 30 linen/cotton prints from Acquitaine is debuting this summer at Calico Corners-Calico Home stores across the country.
A high-end British fabric house, Acquitaine "offers the look of Bennison or Brunschwig without the designer showroom price," noted Lori Cropp, merchandise manager for Calico. "These prints retail for $50 to $60 per yard-and that's an amazing value, considering that some of these patterns have as many as 20 silk-screened colors!"
All patterns are silk-screened, and many of the Acquitaine patterns are taken from 19th and 20th century documents- antique patterns, adapted and redrawn by textile artists to work with the scale and furnishings of 21st century homes.
"The design elements are beautifully rendered, and the 100% linen or linen/cotton base cloth makes the patterns feel young and not so serious," Cropp continued. "We also love the sophisticated color palette, with surprises like citron and persimmon."
