Come along for a "paseo de los muertos" with this delightfully macabre designer fabric from Alexander Henry. Paseo de los muertos means "stroll of the dead" and is part of the Folklórico Collection from Alexander Henry.

The morbid design shows skeletons strolling through la plaza - or town square - of a small town in México. Some are sweeping, others are simply ambling along. One of the scenes is of a skeletal dandy trying to impress two señoritas at once with roses and cuitas de amor. Another scene shows a violinist serenading a young woman with romantic melodies as she dances hypnotized by the slightly out of tune sound. A third scene has an extravagantly dressed couple dancing boleros under the curious gaze of those strolling by.

In this small town where every skeleton knows the other, the town square is also the gathering place to hear the latest gossip. Amorous intrigues don't interest a tidy skeleton sweeping away as his señora politely curtsies as you pass. Finally, in the distance you see two fops trying to secure the attention of an elegant woman who insouciantly refuses to requite their interest.

The story of this fantastical novelty print practically jumps off the fabric. Imagine how shirts, bed sheets, lampshades, curtains or handbags would look when incorporating this fabric.

If you find this fabric to be fascinating, you'll certainly be taken with our other skeletal fabrics. Both this fabric and many more like it can be found in our Skulls and Crossbones Fabric section.
