crescent city toile

anyone who has ever visited the charming, creaky, iconoclastic city of new orleans never leaves without a vivid memory of the place, and truly knows what it means to miss it. actor, entrepreneur (and fellow tulane alum!) bryan batt has designed a lovely toile fabric featuring iconic vieux carre and garden district images instead of the traditional french imagery. it’s a cotton linen blend and comes in 5 colorways, and is produced on items like memo boards, pillows and trays, if you don’t have a chair in need of reupholstery.

i can see the oaks and smell the beignets from here when i look at this.

find the fabric and other treasures in person or online at hazelnut, his charming shop in uptown.
