Becoming Wild in Wavy Blue 50% Upholstery Fabric (92 x 77 cm)
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.
The ideal upholstery fabric
Our upholstery fabric is simultaneously soft and durable, making it an ideal material for covering items of furniture, and/or creating a set of sturdy cushions or curtains.
Lightfast, rubfast colors
The fabric is printed using a sublimation dye technique, which means that that the colors are impregnated into the fabric at extremely high temperatures. This process ensures that the pigments won’t fade or wear with time, exposure to sunlight or with repeated washing on a warm setting.
Suitable for commercial as well as consumer projects
This fabric meets the standard for contract upholstery fabric. It combines the best of both worlds: the soft and beautiful look and feel that suits the most comfortable spaces in your home, with the toughness and durability that ensures it will stand up to high traffic and intensive use.

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.”
