There are two popular animal themes going on right now in fabric design.
As we go into autumn it’s the woodland animals that are making an appearance in fabric prints. I love the arrival of the hedgehog (which is definitely a new feature) alongside rabbits, squirrels, owls and foxes. They range from cute stylised creatures in the children’s prints to block print images in the general fabrics.
Alongside the animals is an abundance of nature inspired designs including toad stalls, acorns, seedpods, leaves and wood.
Looking forward into winter the wild snow theme is definitely taking hold with a strong emphasis on tundra animals. There are some wonderful prints featuring polar bears, moose, reindeer, hares and wolves.
One of the strongest colours themes for winter is grey and white with hints of orange and aqua blue also making an appearance.
I just quickly created this mood board to get your inspiration started. Look out for the wonderful animal prints that will be available to buy soon.
