It was good to go back to my fabric collections again and to see which are my strengths and weaknesses in varieties. I have a good number of upholstery types of fabrics, thanks to my sister-in-law in the business, but by far the greatest is now the wide array of coloured cottons and silks. I have found it fun to go shopping in the souks and love the rich colours. I have a fair number of printed silks too. However in selecting for this section, I did pick out some patterned silks, some linen, cottons, coloured heavy silk and also some raw silk. I included a mix of weights, patterns and plain, some washed for printing and some as they come from the outlets.
