Alchemy describes the magical and mysterious powers of transforming something commonplace into something extraordinary. This season's collection of textiles, trimmings and wallcovering is inspired by precious metals. Metallic effects transform these materials into beautiful surfaces with luxurious detail. Many of the fabrics have matte shine effects or twisted metallic yarns, which are combined with the natural beauty of flax and cotton fibers. Included are several sheers and curtain weight fabrics that are composed of linen and are given metallic accents for a modern look.
