"Free man, you will always cherish the sea!
The sea is your mirror; you contemplate your soul
In the infinite unrolling of its billows;
O eternal fighters, implacable brothers!"
- Charles Baudelaire Man and the Sea (translated by William Aggeler)
The words from this poem express the mysterious allure that the sea holds for man. The often antagonistic relationship that has long existed between man and the sea has inspired numerous poems, novels, paintings and many other works of art.
This fascination with the sea in general - and its creatures in particular- is also evident in fabric. Nowhere is this more noticeable than in Maritime Memories Decorative. This delightful maritime fabric has a colorful design of maps, sextants, compasses, ropes, nautical flags and boat schematics over a white background.
Maritime Memories Decorative will compliment virtually any fabric project requiring a lightweight decorator fabric. Curtains, lampshades, lightweight slipcovers, table covers and window treatments are some of the items that can be made with the lightweight Maritime Memories Decorative.
