Fab Fabrics

Amy Butler is an American textile designer who creates the most beautiful fabric designs. She is inspired by her surroundings and vintage fabrics from the past so her fabrics tend to have that oh so trendy ‘vintage’ feel, often featuring giant flowers, paisleys, vivid stripes and swirls.
Amy has designed ranges exclusively for Rowan, the newest being ‘Nigella’, a collection which makes ‘an exotic, neo Victorian statement. Floral designs collide with feminine romantic flourishes to create a collection of fresh ‘heirloom’ prints with a modern twist.

Amy’s use of colour is to die for. She is a lover of acid greens, aqua blues and vivid pinks which she manages to combine with browns, olive greens and subtle mid tones to create combinations that make your heart beat a little faster!
Her colour combinations compliment the Rowan yarn range perfectly, especially Handknit cotton and Glace and would look amazing alongside any knitting or crochet project.

I dare you not to be inspired!
