Maroc Sourcing

Heritage looks and double-faced fabrics came to the fore at this autumn 12 textiles show in Marrakech.

Duflot Maroc

Quilting specialist Duflot Maroc’s collection includes a wide range of new styles, with floral patterns and teddy bear designs catching the eye. A new finish “semi-destroys” the textile to create patterns out of worn, ripped and frayed sections.

Key trends

Birds of a feather

Prints looked to nature, with several mills using bird and feather motifs in dark autumnal shades on illustrative designs or digital patterns.

Times two

Double-faced fabrics continued to come through as a key direction, either colour blocked or with contrast patterns.

Country heritage

The heritage trend promises to be as big as ever next autumn, with country-style tweeds, checks, plaids and herringbones.
