TCF Textile Challenge – Sponsored by LEESA CHANDLER OF LEESA CHANDLER DESIGNS
The 2016 TCF Textile Challenge featured fabric designed by Leesa Chandler. Leesa is an Australian textile designer, who in partnership with Robert Kaufman fabrics created a collection titled Dutch Cottage. Dutch Cottage featured prints inspired by Dutch porcelain, textiles and architecture.
Last year’s challenge pack included 60cm of the floral fabric in the photo plus 20cm each of two Robert Kaufman coordinate prints which work perfectly with Leesa’s fabric.
