While in London, I visited the Victoria & Albert Museum. After cruising through the various galleries, I went into the gift shop where I immediately spotted a bag made of fabric in the Chrysanthemum, by William Morris pattern in the blue-gray, brown, mauve & cream color. I love the fabric. I adore the bag. I have been using it almost every day since I bought it, and it is fabulous. So today I thought it would be cool to see if I could buy fabric like that for decorating use.
The fabric is *cough* $116 *cough* a yard. So for $116, I could have two throw pillows. (No, the bag did not cost that much. It was 12 pounds, or just short of $24.)
Wow. $116. A yard. For fabric. That is just crazy talk. Although it really is a beautiful pattern. Not that beautiful though!
Update: Ok, this website has it for under $100 a meter for the 100% cotton. The woven fabric is closer to $140. Yowza.
