Edition 2017 - Acanthus Festis
With its patterns and colors specifically created every year the Christmas fabric is a testimony to the textile history of Mulhouse and its region and gives the city its originality.
In order to create this new 2017 Christmas fabric named « Acanthus Festis », Marie-Jo Gebel took her inspiration from engraving archives dating back to the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. They represent ornaments from different architecture styles. Volutes, arabesques, acanthus, lilies and other cabochons form an elegant design highlighted by a blue background and accentuated with gold.
