Becoming Wild on Upholstery Fabric
Light and color transition gradually in this large-scale pattern of peacock feathers, symbolizing a fundamental transformation in the way the peacock sees himself. The sparkle and spectacle of his feathers open up to reveal the warm glow of a new, true and wild beauty within: the beauty of being for the sake of being, rather than for being seen.
Our Upholstery Fabric is simultaneously soft and durable, our upholstery fabric is ideal for covering items of furniture. This fabric is printed using a sublimation dye technique. This means that that the colors are impregnated into the fabric, so that they won’t fade or wear with time or exposure to sunlight.
With a Martindale rating of +/- > 60,000 and a pilling, rub fastness (dry and wet), and lightfastness rating of +/- 4-5, this fabric meets the standard for contract upholstery fabric. It can therefore be used for commercial projects as well as private homes.
The prints are sharp and vibrant on this incredibly soft yet durable fabric. It’s truly the perfect material for transforming ordinary furniture items into eye-catching, statement pieces for your interior.

Ellie’s original artwork ‘Becoming Wild’ is printed here using a sublimation dye technique, which means the fabric becomes impregnated with the pigments, and won’t fade or wear with time or exposure to sunlight.
“In this design,” Ellie says, “I’m imagining that a ‘disturbance’ - a gust of wind, a change in the atmosphere, or a transformative life experience - has caused the peacock’s tail feathers to release, open and fall away. A protective barrier of beauty and spectacle breaks down and opens up. The peacock exposes his vulnerability, makes an offer of true connection, and invites the viewer in.
As the feathers are released, so is the bird: freed from the heavy and immobilizing burden of his external beauty … being, at last, for his own sake of being, rather than for being seen. The peacock becomes aware of his true, wild beauty, and of how it exists - and always has - not in his outer, but in his inner world: in the magical, transformative power of his own imagination and the new potential for freedom and flight that he finds there.”
