Monroe, by global textile innovator Camira, is a simple yet stylish dobby weave upholstery fabric.
The textured woollen bouclé fabric embraces the current trend for optimistic nostalgia by taking inspiration from the 1950s and in particular movie icon Marilyn Monroe. Monroe’s tactile pre-worn bobbled effect is reminiscent of fabrics found on upholstery and apparel from the 50s era.
Monroe is available in 18 optimistic colorways including candy pinks, retro blues and pop-art inspired tones. The pattern has the backing of Camira’s five year wear warranty.
To celebrate the launch, Camira commissioned London College of Art graduate Dan Ojari, to create a stop-motion animation to recreate a fifties inspired masterpiece.
