The over hundred-years-old Venetian textile company Rubelli presented their new collection Venezia 2016 In Wonderland during the “Münchner Stoff Frühling“ fair. You know I’m a textile designer and I couldn’t keep my hands from touching these wonderful fabrics. A mix of precious, classic motifs and some incredibly modern designs. Today I show you a selection of the Rubelli collection.
The Filarete design reminds me of a broken ancient fresco and it perfectly match together with Victoria, a shiny faux uni. Both have a wonderfully rich and noble effect.
My next favorite fabric is Rembrandt, which mimics large brush strokes. The best way to bring this curvy pattern with irregular features to a perfect weaved fabric is a Jacquard process.
Monet is a printed chenille inspired by a watercolour painting.
I love the Backgammon design, because this simple geometric pattern always works and Rubelli created some wonderful colourways.
Friedy, one of my favorites, has a tartan-like weave with modern colours. I love it as a chair upholstery.
