From Source to Sea on Upholstery Fabric

This upholstery fabric with Ellie's From Source to Sea design opens up a world of possibilities. Use it to transform items of furniture, create a series of cushions or a set of statement curtains. The design shows a glittering lacework of lines that traces the path of an imagined river, as seen from a bird’s eye view.

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.

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.
