The Waratah Woven Jacquard collection marks the second of Performance fabrics released by Utopia Goods.

Continuing their mission to combine old-world craft and innovative technologies this new collection honors one of the most iconic floral emblems of Australia, and in particular New South Wales, where the Utopia Goods studio is based. With the Australian landscape and native flora as muse, Utopia Goods continue to expand their textile offer and further their mission of story-telling through ethical and sustainable production. This new collection of fabrics is the result of a 70% post consumer recycled yarn.

With its nod to C18th European and American hand printed resist fabrics and French Jacquards, the Wild Waratah is a unique combination of historical design cues and state-of-the-art engineering. An authentic textile example of history merging with modernity. The Waratah is a longstanding and repeat motif within the Utopia Goods collection, and this new rendition provides yet another chance to see the beauty of the Australian bush through the eyes of founders of Utopia Goods, artist Bruce Slorach, and his creative partnerSophie Tatlow.

How to use the Waratah Woven Jacquard Collection

The Wild Waratah, and entire Utopia Goods Performance collection is a series of robust, UV resistant woven jacquards. The performance collection offers a transitional application, and can be applied to projects both indoors and out. Suitable for residential projects, re-upholstery of a much-loved piece of furniture, these fabrics are wonderful for both busy house-holds, as well as hospitality or commercial design projects.
