The Textile Files

Nothing makes me happier than looking at beautiful textiles all day and thinking about where I'd use each one of them in my home. But I've found that while I'm perusing the internet in search of lovely fabrics, I'm often left wanting more - that is, more of a good thing in one place. I hate having to hop from one site to the next and try my best to imagine how one fabric would work in relation to another. I have yet to find one well curated, tasteful & aesthetically pleasing location online where I can see all kinds of different fabrics by different designers that I admire. So....



...I've decided to create that place myself! It's called The Textile Files and my hope is to create a constantly evolving virtual textile showroom that features all of my personal favorite interior fabrics, by color, in catalogs of sort. And let me just tell you, the result is visual candy if I've ever seen it! Take a look, browse, dream about where YOU would use these stunning fabrics in your home, and please, please share with me! I'd love to hear about what you would do with a particular fabric or why you are in love with a certain pattern or color combination. What makes you feel inspired? And please check back often - The Textile Files are my newest obsession so almost every night after I tuck the kids into bed I can be found online, glass of wine in hand, pinning more lovelies into the files. I'd also love to hear from you on who your favorite textile companies & designers are. I'm always looking for new ones to check out and just might add them to my growing compilation in The Textile Files.


As an aside, I'd like to note that cloth & kind's continued evolution, and The Textile Files' creation, are in large part inspired by Holly Becker of Decor8. I have been a quiet reader of Decor8 for some time now and am constantly invigorated and motivated by Holly and her down to earth, fresh approach to interior design and blogging. She is 100% real, with no pretense which is why I can not get enough of Decor8. And, to all my fellow bloggers out there, I highly, highly recommend Holly's Blogging Your Way e-course. I just completed it, and in it was introduced to so many valuable blogging concepts and online resources, like Pinterest - The Textile Files' new home. Thank you, Holly!

Have an amazing weekend, all!

  1. Super lovely little round ups. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you come up with. I'm a fellow textile lover too. Wish I could see a tiny bit more of each of your samples though!

  2. Maryam - Thank you for your comment! Glad you like my little textile files project. I figured there would be other textile junkies out there like me who could appreciate it. I agree that they images are too small - I have a much better longer term plan in the works!

    I've loved your blog for some time now and hope to come visit you in Marrakesh at the Peacock Pavillions one day. If I do, will you take me textile shopping? :-)
