50s Block Design Print Fabric. The striking design covering this lightweight polyester fabric definitely takes inspiration from the bold geometric and angular designs seen at the latter end of the fifties, often used in interior designs from wallpaper to furniture, artwork, and in fabric prints large and small for men or women. The polyester fabric has a textured crepe feel and when held up to the light, you can see the mottles weave is finer in part than others, on a minuscule scale, this blend helps to give the fabric its crepe like texture. The large print on the fabric is crisp and bold, set in a colour palate of turquoise and teal, the tones range from deep midnight blue, peacock, river, Fiji waters and aqua mixed with monochrome tones of charcoal, silver grey and white all outlined in black.
