Coastal Calling: Mediterraneo Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

A few years ago, I had the amazing opportunity to experience the Mediterranean coast and visited the village of Positano in Italy. For those of you who have traveled to this region or are planning a visit, this place truly awakens all of the senses. From the sights of the magenta bougainvillea that cascade onto the sun-bleached terracotta and peach colored homes, the zesty smell of lemon trees permeating the air and delicious taste of fresh seafood from the Mediterranean sea, it’s simply breathtaking and enchanting! 

Inspired by her childhood memories and summers spent along the Mediterranean coast, our ...
