Parlor Textiles: Collection II

[From left to right: Filigree in blue and in a bright camel-gold followed by
Confetti Floral Stripe in blue and green.]

A visit to the MFA, Boston inspired parts of Angela Clinton's soon-to-be-available second collection for Parlor Textiles. Still intrigued with ornament and surface pattern, this go round she's infused her new printed-in-the-US organic linen-cottons with more trad florals. Case in point: Confetti Floral Stripe. The design sprang from a motif she spied on an antique Indonesian batik sarong at the Museum but as Angela explained to me, she reinterpreted it through a Western lens.

Her palette has also expanded to encompass soft pinks, which you'll see a bit later. Filigree will be available in four colorways and Confetti Floral Stripe in three. Stop by North Carolina-based Parlor Textiles online next week to shop the first arrivals.
