Venice Fabric Collection
Key Word Characteristics of the Burano Island Canal in Venice
Vibrant: Materials don’t get much more vibrant than the bright color selection in Milliskin Matte spandex. The matte finish adds to the bold statement.
Colorful: Available in over 110 shades, mystique satin has an impressive array of shades from pastels to bold to neutrals. Use the front side for the lustrous satin finish or the backside for more of a matte poplin finish.
Known for Lacework: While visiting this island in Northern Venice, one can stop in to a shop selling handmade needle lace using centuries old techniques. However, modern Stretch Lace options in vibrant colors may work better and be more cost effective within modern architectural spaces.
Surrounded by water: Layering materials is a great way to get a water look. One combination includes using Sheer Stretch Mesh over a Tiny Dot material to get the sparkle of sunlight while maintaining blues or sea foam shades if the water.
Peaceful: Off the beaten path, many visitors report that the quieter streets bring a sense of peace. Peaceful should not be confused with boring when Poly Cube material is incorporated. The textured weave can add a nice dimension when printed while still maintaining a soft hand.
