My textile print designs have been bought by major retailers worldwide for the last 20 years for fashion, accessories and home decor. In 2013 I launched my own website & brand paisleypower.com specializing in creating unique fabrics and fabric products.

Description:

The Mexican Day of The Dead is celebrated on 2 November. My design is based on imagery from this Mexican annual holiday. I have created 6 colour versions of my design called "Skull Bandana Mexican". They are in different colour combinations and are all available to order from the Paisley Power online fabric store at Spoonflower.com. I drew all the motifs by hand, which include decorative skulls, flowers, paisley symbols, striped borders and stars. A popular layout method for creating bandana designs is to scatter them to form a tossed collage of many bandanas. This is the 'look' I hope I have achieved in this design. Skull motifs are always popular in graphics, textiles, art and sculpture. The skulls that I have drawn are humorous and convey an enjoyable mood, which is suitable for the Mexican public holiday celebration. I hope that people all over the world will enjoy my design, even thought the Day of the Dead is mainly celebrated in Mexico and also by the large Mexican communities in US. The Day of the Dead is a national holiday in Mexico. In the future I hope to make individual bandanas for humans and pets, using these fabrics. If you follow my Paisley Power blog and Paisley Power facebook page, you will be informed of all new exciting design projects. On 6th August 2018, the day after the design was launched, a new customer bought a yard of the design. They ordered it from Spoonflower and chose to have it printed on Kona® Cotton Ultra fabric. They chose the red version of the design. I am sure they will make something stylish with the fabric, either for fashion or for home decor. #Mexican #skull #bandana #paisley
