Gold Prints

February 2003

Gold prints sometimes called fancy prints, are those grandiose purples, vibrant reds, hot pinks, beaming blues, and deep greens offset with gold.  The motifs are representative of Afrikan culture, both traditional and modern.  Gold prints clearly have a right and wrong side.  This 100% cotton fabric is printed or stamped only on one side, unlike many wax prints which are stamped on both.  

Those of us who love fabric can't help stopping to look at and to feel those prints because, it seems, they have a mesmerizing affect.  Perhaps this is one of the characteristics that has made the gold print one of the most popular fabrics in Europe and the United States today.

In the U.S., where there is a mixing of customs creating a very unique culture, gold prints are making their mark in the fashion industry.  They are being used in home furnishings such as: lines, draperies, table settings, etc; and in articles of clothing like: vest, dresses, and jackets just to name a few.

So if the gold prints beckon to you and you find one that really catches your eye, perhaps it is time for something new and exciting.
