Inari is the Japanese spirit of fertility, rice, agriculture, foxes, industry and worldly success. The association with rice is obvious in inarizushi -- sushi rice in a sweetened fried tofu wrapper. (The tofu is meant to appeal to foxes, and the roll's pointed corners evoke fox ears. Have I mentioned how helpful I find Wikipedia?)
This pattern's intricately-drawn design evokes closely-packed rice (or even ant eggs -- but in a good way!). The creamy off-white material blends perfectly with the dark charcoal grey of the Inari pattern.
A subtle, nature-inspired palette invites these fabrics into a variety of settings -- as home decor accents, clothing, or fashion accessories, we're convinced you'll love the tela collection. Designed as hand-drawn repeating patterns originally rendered in ink and gouache, these intricate drawings are professionally printed on sustainable fabrics to create unique works of art.
With a printed width of 53.5 inches, the fabric is 59" wide. At 7 ounces per linear yard, the fabric itself is approximately 4.2 ounces per square yard. It is made of of organic cotton, grown and woven in India and printed in the US.
This pattern is also available in hemp/organic cotton, for more coordinating possibilities. Consider making curtains out of the sateen print and throw pillows from the heavier hemp/cotton, or make placemats from the hemp/cotton with matching sateen napkins. They're stunning together!
As you can hopefully see in the bottom picture, the design has two darker portions that almost make lines on the fabric; I don't mind it at all, but we believe in full disclosure around here!
