Viva Frida Fabric is a textile homage to the prominent Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Her series of famous self-portraits and other works have garnered her international attention and secured her posthumous reputation as one of Mexico's greatest artists.

Viva Frida Fabric incorporates elements of her culture without making explicit references to her paintings. This imaginative design by Phillip de León depicts a stylized portrait of her with the words "Viva Frida" within a frame of thorns. The print includes plants and flowers that Frida Kahlo would have known, especially cactuses. In the background is a modest hacienda, perhaps meant to represent her home in Coyoacán, México. The background is a light tea dye color.

Other elements reminiscent of her work are hands gathering flowers, hearts wrapped in thorns and melons with faces. Underneath the hands gathering flowers are two doves holding a banner which in Spanish reads "Abrazo de amor del universo" (English: Embrace of universal love). Underneath the hearts flies a banner with the following words: "Te amo mucho" (English: I love you very much). There are other words printed throughout the fabric, such as:

"Ya no estoy sola" - I am no longer alone

"Nada vale más que la risa y el desprecio" - Nothing is more valuable than laughter and scorn

"En un sueño viviremos los dos - los dos" - In a dream we two shall live - we two

"Amor, calor, dolor, dador, amor" - Love, warmth, pain, a giver, love

Viva Frida is an enchanting fabric that will introduce a strange and inviting allure to your fabric projects. Quilts, draperies, bed sheets, garments, crafts, table covers, lampshades, pet clothing and much more will become irresistible expressions of your imagination.
