Gingezel Decor: Fabric
Spoonflower has a wide range of fabrics that are suitable for decor accents like pillows, quilting projects, curtains, and upholstery.
Over the years we have invested a lot of time designing and testing fabric, to the point where Gingezel Fabric now has over 1000 designs for you to choose from at Spoonflower. The photo above is of our very first collection, Ocean Villa.
Every fabric we have at Spoonflower is test printed. The photo above shows a test print draped on our couch. Once the test prints get here, we check each one against the digital file to make sure it is accurate and we like it. Every test print like the one above gets a few crossed off because we simply don't like them once we see them printed.
Initially we photographed each fabric laying flat, then in a stack with the coordinating fabric. It took us a couple months to figure out how to get those stacks so you could see the fabric all at once. (We ended up wrapping the test swatches around t shirts).
But as the number of fabrics reached hundreds we simply could not keep up. We keep at it, but sporadically. Also although the photos are interesting and comforting to you as the customer, they became less meaningful as the range of fabrics expanded. Each fabric "grabs" the ink differently, and also reacts slightly differently to the inks. You can see that in the photos below. The top is quilting cotton, the bottom performance knit. They were photographed at the same time.
Spoonflower is a company that really cares about quality, and they have dealt with this through an inexpensive swatching service. We recommend you use it to be sure you will be happy with your project.
We further test the fabric by sewing with it for projects around our own home, and using the results. We are definitely not experts, and have been thrilled with the successes.
Here is a throw pillow and curtains made from fabric in that first Ocean Villa Collection.
