Tattooed Parlor


Coming up with fresh designs for Carnegie Fabrics is easy for creative director Heather Bush, as she finds inspiration in just observing life around her. Take body art. The ancient art of tattooing has seen a resurgence -- but why limit the symbols and designs to just skin? The pattern above, Flash Art, is Bush's re-interpretation of a sheet of flash, which, like recipes from a grandmother, can be passed down and around by artists to inspire and to encourage imitation.
Tattoo_soleil_2Here, the pattern Soleil radiates on this poly, rayon, cotton & wool blend. The shapes are simple and playful -- in not quite apparent body art hues. Still for those who are squeamish of tattoo parlors, have the option to tat their own parlors.
