Debra Valencia and Spectrum Home Textiles have announced the release of a new collection of Shibori designed bedding.
Select prints from Valencia’s Shibori Collection can be found on stationery, bedding and other home goods. The entire collection is available for licensing across all product categories. The deal was created by The Brand Liaison, the exclusive licensing agent for designer Debra Valencia.
Typically used only for textiles in the past, the Shibori collections are on trends as surface art for dinnerware, home accents, wall décor, social stationery, paper goods, craft, apparel, fashion accessories, bath/beauty products and more.
The new comforter ensembles designs are as follows:
- "Toshi" features patterns created with the Katana Shibori technique which involves the fabric folded accordion style with designs handstitched, the textile hand dyed then all stitching removed;
- "Asami" features water-like organic stripes using the Arashi Shibori technique with fabric tightly wrapped on a pole, tied with thread, then the textile hand dyed;
- “Hana” features bold stripes created with a folding and clamping using a technique called Itajame; and
“Mariko” features a circular motif created with the Nui Shibori technique of hand sewing, pulling and gathering fabric prior to dyeing. The stitches are then removed to reveal the design.
“We are thrilled to introduce the Debra Valencia Home Shibori Collection in four different eye-catching designs that are appealing to our customers across the board,” says Arshad Mohammed, president, Spectrum Home Textiles.
All collections are sold as nine-piece sets in classic indigo blue indicative of authentic Shibori. The ensembles include reversible comforters in both king and queen sizes with matching pillow shams, bed skirt, two Euro shams, two square accent pillows and one breakfast pillow. All pieces are made of an 120gsm brushed microfiber.
The bedding ensembles are available at many independent retailers nationwide as well as major retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond and Wayfair.com. In 2021/22, Spectrum Home will expand the Debra Valencia collections with new bedding ensembles as well as decorative accent pillows.
