The barkcloth that almost killed my boss — and why we like it anyway

The ‘Bird of Paradise’ pattern was our favorite because the addition of the flower — and the extra pop of color it gives the pattern — creating a depth and versatility that is unmatched by the other purely botanical prints.

If you’re looking for botanical prints that would feel at home in a vintage Hawaiiana style room or tiki lounge, the selection available through this company is a great place to start looking.

    I covered the cushions for two teak chairs with the big leaf you have featured and love it. The weight is good, easy to sew and very comfy tactile feel. I’m pulling my interior paint colors from the fabric. Love them!
