This ogee-patterned fabric  has an unusual and very pleasing design combining embroidery with satin-stitched appliqued embellishment.

Although Schumacher classifies it as a modern woven, this pattern would be at home in a transitional setting, as well.

It’s available in a color palette of yellow-green &  soft, warm blue with a mid-tone green  — shown here —  and also in a palette of  red and oranges that ‘pop’ against a dark brown fabric ground.

I’ve included the detail above so you can really see how tactile this fabric is.  The overall pattern is shown here:

Use:  This fabric is suitable for soft furnishing like drapes, roman shades, valances or cornices and bedding.
