Bright, Bold, & Nostalgic: Retro-Inspired Fabrics to Excite Your Senses

After a weekend of digging through my mother’s vintage scarves and bags, I’m inspired to brighten up my wardrobe with vivid hues like the ones in these retro-inspired fabrics created by Aussie company Retro Age Vintage Fabrics. They’re based out of Victoria, Australia, but they’re known worldwide for their specialization in vintage textiles, which range from 1920s to 1970s-inspired designs. We’re partial to the mod ones, of course, but it’s clear their expertise spans oodles of eras.

Check out their Flickr stream to view more hip and happenin’ prints.
