From Source to Sea on Upholstery Fabric

A glittering lacework of lines traces the path of an imagined river, as seen from a bird’s eye view. The river winds its way through the landscape, from source to sea. Open areas in the foreground motif invite you to see through to a soft horizon line in the distance, and to ponder, as a bird might do, the potential of adventures that haven’t yet been had.

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.

This print imagines two elements that a bird would observe from his elevated perch: a glistening river and a hazy horizon line.

While the suggestion of the horizon in the background of this print calls on our own sense of freedom, possibility and adventure, the river motif in the foreground provides a metaphor for how we can move through the landscapes of our own lives: constantly changing, without ever abandoning ourselves. From beginning to end, all of the movement and change that takes place in the river belongs to one journey, one gesture, one sound and one self.

My hope is that ‘From Source to Sea’ will bring the viewer a sense of calm, harmony, contentment and freedom. I hope she will be reminded of the course and the beautiful landscape of her own life, and the idea that she can feel at home - anytime, anywhere - when she feels at home in her own heart.”

Ellie says: “With their wings spread, their bodies prone, birds glide through the open landscape, experiencing the scale and spaciousness of their natural surroundings and an enormous sense of freedom and possibility.
