Andover Fabrics is delighted to announce that the first exclusive collection of licensed fabrics for Downton Abbey ® will be available to you this November. Playing on the strength of the upstairs women of Downton, our exciting premiere collection will be THE WOMEN’S COLLECTION, featuring designs chosen in collaboration with the award-winning Downton Abbey production team.
The Dowager Countess:
Bold and elegant, like the Dowager herself, this collection of fabrics is punctuated by prints and paisleys as big as her presence. The gray, purple, and black colors come straight from her wardrobe, and the patterns speak to her undeniable flair, steeped in refined tradition.
A resolute, breathtaking beauty; Mary’s fabrics showcase both her strength and style. Dark burgundy, blue, and green jewel tones saturate her patterns, some of which are inspired by her stunning headdress.
Enterprising and avant-garde both in character and fashion, Edith’s collection features breakthrough colors and patterns from the Edwardian era. Edith’s fabrics suggest the transition towards art deco, as demonstrated by her stylized floral patterns.
Sybil’s fabric collection embodies her kindness, cheer, and dynamic character. The production team felt the bold geometric and large floral really spoke of Sybil. Her colors are a darker seafoam and blue gray with mauve purples.
In addition to the women’s fabric collections, we’ve also included four additional patterns that are unmistakably Downton. Each companion print is colored to complement and tie together the women’s collections, and set the scene for their characters, just as Downton Abbey does.
