Our Oriental Shop is all about Asian design and its influence on the world of quilting. We specialise in Japanese influences. The Shop is in three major textile/design types.
Traditional Design - you will find a selection of "traditional" designs in indigo, terracotta, cream, rose and black. Heavier weight slub fabrics, wovens and brocades do appear here.
Taupes - these soft, subtle and beautiful fabrics are collectively referred to as taupes. The name has nothing to do with their colour. They are textured and delightful. Quiltsmith has one of the largest selection of taupe fabrics in Australia.
Prints - think Kona Bay or Quilt Gate prints. Here you will find peonies and carp, pagodas and dragons. Just a visual delight. These prints often have a metallic overlay. This is indicated by an mg (metallic gold) or ms (metallic silver) in the fabric’s name.
