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 make with them, but prints are just more fun to look at.
Here are out top 5 favourite fabrics from the past few weeks!
01. Ponte Print (36712)
This gorgeous print is 57% Polyester, 38% Rayon and 5% Spandex, so it is thick and stretchy, just the way we like it. We absolutely adore the vintage feeling of the floral print, the way it looks aged and lived in.
02. Houndstooth (36744, colour 01)
This houndstooth remix print comes in white, blue, gold and silver, but we prefer the classic white. The print contains 3 variations of the houndstooth design, which gives it a modern, fresh feel, all the while keeping with it’s classic and timeless nature. It’s 97% Polyester and 3% Spandex.
03. Bounty (36717)
This quilted Bounty fabric comes in very vibrant shades of silver and gold, as well as a classic black hue. It’s magnificent shine left us speechless, we don’t know what we’d make with this, but we love it anyway!
04. Moda Crepe Print (36798)
We’re very into the colour palette of this floral print. We have a soft spot for anything that pairs brown and light blue together. Forever nostalgic for the 1970s.
05. Blossom Chiffon Print (36873)
Who doesn’t love a good pin-up lady print? This one is simply irresistible! This one comes in red, green & navy and it reminds of us the summer.
How do you feel about our fabric picks? Let us know!
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 […]

FASHION CULTURE: Barcelona
When it comes to cities rich in art, cultural heritage, and beautiful sights, Barcelona is a top contender. The capital city of Catalonia, Spain, boasts the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea. It is quite suiting that legend has it that Barcelona was founded by the mythological Hercules. Endowed with its lovely beaches, culinary treats, […]
INTERVIEW WITH ERIN FROM SEWBON
With so many DIY blogs out there, one can feel a little overwhelmed perusing through a Google search to find the perfect tutorial. Recently I’ve been trying to expand my sewing talents. Okay, who am I kidding- such talents do not exist. So let’s just say I’ve been on my fair share of do-it-yourself sewing […]
TREND ALERT: Air Mesh
Every now and then (and these moments are few and far between) we come across a new fabric that is extremely unique that we fall in love with. When we first saw the Air Mesh, we placed an order right away without even thinking twice! The fabric is 2-3mm thick and its honeycomb mesh exterior […]
