What is Crypton? This type of fabric is a very durable weave that is virtually indestructible so it is used mainly for commercial installations. Crypton consists of polyester, rayon and acrylic blends or a combination of the aforementioned.

Lee Jofa's Floral Bouquet

Have you seen this floral print before? Maybe your Mother used this large floral in the 1960's! This print is from Lee Jofa and yes, no kidding, this floral has been around since the 60's. This is Mario Buatta's favorite fabric and he has used it over and over again. The floral has been updated over the years and is now a linen/cotton instead of the chintz that made it popular through the years. But the print remains the same!

Pattern: Lee Jofa's Floral Bouquet
Colorways: Pearl or Mocha; Eggshell has been recently discontinued.
Retail Price: $198.00 per yard.
This is a large vertical repeat of 35" x 25.5" horizontal and is a 66% linen/34% cotton blend.
