Celebrate the mountain towns, flower festivals and colorful houses of the Dominican Republic with these 21 fabrics featuring modern brights, fresh florals and versatile blenders. Mix and match for quilts and handbags that pop, or choose one focus print for apparel and home décor.
Dominicana features a vibrant tropical palette: pastel yellow, airy aqua and bright red. A medley of florals, cute guava and plantain motifs, colorful homes and confetti make for a fun and cheery collection. And just wait until you see the cute selvages on this collection!
Dominicana will be available for wholesale pre-order in October. Fabric begins shipping November 2016.
There are a lot of exciting Dominicana projects on the way and we can’t wait to share them with you later this fall!
