Color Palette: Vintage Textile in Fall Colors
This textile from the late 1960's has a color way typical for fall apparel designs from that time period. The continued use of pinks (all the rage during the late 60's) are shown here tempered by a burgundy background and blue accents. Rust, which would become even more important during the 70's, is used in traces as the branches and leaves. The floral arrangement, with its Asian influences was very popular when used in jackets, skirts, long dresses or minis. The textile is a soft acrylic challis.
