[Brigitte Singh's Red Hibiscus Branch.]
[Brigitte Singh's Cream Pise Floral.]
If you have any small upholstery projects in mind for the summer -- maybe a bench or footstool -- and you are partial to Mughal-inspired block-printed cotton, check out the current specials over at Aleta Online. Various pieces of Brigitte Singh's exceptional print, Cream Pise Floral, are available (I spotted one remnant on sale for $35) and a larger remnant of my favorite Red Hibiscus Branch (125.2 x 56.7 inches) is discounted to approximately $115. I say approximately because the prices are in UK Pounds and I used a currency converter. Long-time readers have heard me say this before, but Aleta Bartel-Orton is so easy to deal with and her shipping prices to the U.S. are fair. That's why I periodically browse her sale section.
Still haven't attempted to order a book from the far away Calico Museum of Textiles, but aren't the offerings tempting?

Apart from the Calico Museum shop, I did find old copies of Indian Painted and Printed Textiles Volume I, by John Irwin and Margaret Hall here and here.
