COLOUR CRUSH: Marina Blue
New shades of blue are a rare thing to come by, every possible hue has been explored many times before. That being said, when certain blues we haven’t seen in a while make a comeback, we’re all for it.
The more blues the better!
Next season, we’ll be seeing the return of Marina Blue.
This particular tint of blue is very cool, soft and exquisitely contemporary. It’s perfect for a variety of different garments, whether they’re casual or formal, but it’s even more fun as a statement accessory colour!
As you can imagine, we’re well prepared for the Marina Blue takeover here at Télio, we have a variety of fabrics of the shade or incorporating the colour. Our Rayon Voile Print, Miami Denim and Mesh for instance, as seen below.
We want it to be Spring already so we can wear this colour (truth be told, we’ll totally start wearing it right away). Are you going to be rocking some marina blue as well? Let us know!

TOP 5 FRIDAY: Fabric Picks
We get so much fabric at the Télio offices that some times we just have to take a moment and share our favourites with you. We can’t keep all of this love for ourselves! As you know, we’re always partial to prints, solid coloured textiles are fun and we always image the garments we would […]
MONDAY MOOD: Quilted Fabrics
Strangely, we often hear people talk about using pre-quilted fabric to make quilts. Technically, that’s not really what it’s made for. Of course, you’re welcome to do whatever you want with it, but we prefer to use it for other things. What kind of things you may ask? The possibilities are endless! Coats for one, […]
TREND ALERT: Blanket Capes
If you’ve been inside a clothing store this season you’ve undoubtedly seen this season’s biggest trend; the blanket cape! Yes, we’re aware it’s just a fancy industry name for a poncho, but we’re all over it, and technically, the blanket cape is worn a little longer than the regular, traditional fringy poncho that was all […]
FABRIC INSPIRATION: Festina
Festina! There was no better way to call these fabrics, because they’re the definition of festive! Our brand new Festina prints all come in multi-coloured shades with a black base. The floral designs of the fabric can be deciphered from afar by looking at the embroidered coloured touches on the black woven base. Some even […]
TREND ALERT: Sequin Tunics
Have you ever had that moment where you see a piece of clothing and you know that you will never get over it. We say ”never get over it” because buying said piece is totally out of the question, but it simply will never leave our thoughts for as long as we live. Has that […]

MOOD: Motivational Fall Fabrics
We know that fall can sometimes be depressing. It means the end of summer, it means colder weather, it means less sunlight, it means the holiday shopping season is coming. Here at Télio, instead of feeling blue, we embrace the season! We do so by wearing a lot of October’s unofficial colour, Orange! Orange, like […]
