Jim Thompson’s most recent No 9 collection, Tiger Tiger, is inspired by the antique, handcrafted rugs of Tibet. Geometric borders frame whimsical patterns in unexpected color combinations inspired by the motifs and vegetable dyed hues of these exquisite rugs.
My favorite is the signature pattern of the collection which is, of course, called Tiger Tiger! The Starlight Blue colorway is saturated and rich. The ground for this fabric is a linen twill which brings depth and a crisp texture.
These wonderfully rendered tigers are amiably whimsical and not at all ferocious! They are smiling!!! There is a hand painted quality to this charming textile. I find it completely engaging!
Envision wonderful throw pillows featuring these smiling tigers! Perfect! Or imagine a dramatic duvet cover as the focal point for your master bedroom! Tiger Tiger is a fabric to absolutely adore and I do!
