As I told you last time, I’m sharing the design stories behind the new products, available here as well.
Today I’d like to tell you about Phoebe.
Again the same basic shape as Athaliah’s and also in African wax print.
I really like this fabric. It has an almost “formal” feel to it and the colours of black, brown and green reminds me of Africa on so many levels.
To accentuate the “formalness” of the fabric I’ve again used a button flap as closure, this time a more square one.
The button I found in an antique shop.
If it’s an antique one, I really can’t say, but doesn’t the antelope remind you strongly of a Bushman rock painting too?
