Now here's a clever and interesting fabric! Shipwreck is a wool ponte with a super overprinted design that made us think of long lost shipwrecks, deep at the bottom of the ocean.
The cross hatched, splintered like design is printed in black onto a very military and earthy khaki green tone. A light layer of fine wool fibres are felted over the black design adding extra textural interest and making the fabric more dense.
The added embellishment not only gives extra warmth to our Shipwreck ponte, but it also gives the fabric a bespoke feel too. This stunning fabric may have a dark and brooding look, but don't be crestfallen! Its dense wool construction will wrap you up and leave you feeling cosy and reassured.
It is soft to touch and stable in handle with a similar feel to melton, but with a slight width wise ease, as it is a knitted fabric. Shipwreck Ponte also boasts a soft drape quality, making it incredibly versatile. Put this amazing designer fabric to use for clever creations of your choosing - Shipwreck certainly won't leave you feeling washed up!
A stunning fabric for both mens and ladies wear with a serious edge. This swirling fabric will make wonderful skirts in almost every style, don't overlook pinafore dresses and tunic dresses too! Sports luxe styles such as bomber jackets with chunky metallic piping and contrasting cuffing will look suitably dramatic. Cocoon style coats with edgey seam details also ideal!
Why not try crafting a military style cargo jacket with a hood, flap pockets and draw string details? A wonderful alternative to your usual 'go anywhere' jacket!
