• prints...

The market is offering up a bounty of prints at this time. Chief among these are the borders that are being used for engineered effects. There is certainly a lot of borders in the skirt and dress areas... they are colorful and still have either an India or N. Africa feel or populated with fresh garden florals in fresh mint green, buttercup yellow, and coral pinks.

We are seeing quite a bit of liberty style and traditional cotton calico prints, which can be a part of a western/prairie trend or a summery romantic one.

Ethnic prints that include African motifs that include cowry shells, prints traditional to mud cloth and kente, batik as the Mali women of Western Africa wear, tie-dye, and ombré are all part of the world market (or tribal council) trend which in the final analysis is about... a shrinking world.
