COLLECTION: The Egyptian Collection. As a result of Howard Carter finding Tutankhamun, and other archaeologists unearthing Egyptian treasures, an Egyptian trend was born. This trend affected all aspects of the design world: clothing, jewelry, furnishings, fine artwork, and seemingly everything fashionable. Lotus blossoms, hieroglyphs, amulets, and other Egyptian motifs were all the rage, and are so captured in this fabric collection. The colors featured are reminiscent of the precious jewels found in the treasures themselves: lapis, onyx, carnelian, turquoise, and especially gold.
