Aztec style upholstery fabric woven with an array of soft contrasting and complementing shades. We stock two colour ways to choose from,
Ice/ Gold - A very cold ice blue, verging on aqua, contrasting with a rich warm golden shade. These two colours are accompanied by sage green, greige and soft browns and pale muted teal.
Multi - There are more shades in this combination and like the ice /gold colour - way, the chosen colours contrast comfortably with each other. Warm golden brown and tan shades with teal and green. The front of the fabric uses soft brushed chenille yarn in pale beige as a main colour, along with a mix of subdued and soft colours of pale beige, air force blue, forest green, clay red, saffron yellow, herb green, navy blue and teal. These are created using an intricate weave of stronger shades in the actual thread. The shades are toned down from the more exotic jewel like colours usually depicted with Mexican and Aztec style, but if you are looking for these kind of colours, just turn the fabric around!
Now here is the twist, the back of the fabric is much brighter and looks stunning. You could easily use the underside for your projects if you please. The colours are much stronger and far more dynamic. The strength in the saturation of the colours on the back is a closer match to the fresh and spicy colours often seen in Mexican and Aztec theme interiors and fashion.
The yarn used on the back is all strong polycotton, whereas the front of the fabric also uses beige chenille yarn for a multi textured feel. Front or back, all the colours used are of a similar tone, so they still combine beautifully in a strong geometric patterns with a distinctive Aztec look.
