French General is celebrating 10 years of designing for Moda Fabrics, and this is depicted in the 100% cotton, Chafarcani range. Introduced to France in the 17th century, from Turkey and other areas of the Ottoman Empire, Chafarcani prints were typically small red and white designs on linen and often used as lining fabric for clothing. This collection also has the classic French General reds, pearls and neutrals.
Collecting antique textiles in France has long been a passion of Kaari Meng, owner of French General. French General is a workshop located in Los Angeles, California that stocks a collection of vintage craft kits, as well as fabric and old millinery supplies. The fabric collections represent colours that could have been found in 18th century rural homes in France. Different textures and prints are meant to blend together for projects that are both beautiful and functional. Filled with soft faded reds, ticking stripes and provencal checks, the fabrics are made to be used for heirloom quilts as well as home interiors.
