Eastern Exoticism

I've just come across some beauiful silk products imported by Roisin Cross, a silk importer based in Dublin. Silk is just so luxurious, it can hardly be compared to any other fabric on the market. It adds an Eastern exoticism to any room when used for curtains or cushions.

Silk has a long history and gives the impression that it has travelled the world to be in your home. As Roisin days on her website... Silk is the centrepiece of countless myth’s and legends as well as real history, including lending it’s name to the most important overland trading route in human history, the Silk Road that linked the Far East with Europe for hundreds of years.

Here are some beautiful fabrics from Roisin Cross
