Moon Garden is a fabric collection that pays tribute to those of us who bloom at night. When the sun goes down most people move inside and start winding down from the day. Outside, under the glow of moonlight, a whole other world is just waking up. Moon Garden features all kinds of garden regulars that are drawn to the fragrance and nourishment that the soil provides. There are owls and birds, of course, bees, dragonflies and an elegant yet often misunderstood little garden snake.
With the introduction of Tula Pink’s True Colors and Solids collections, she was able to focus on creating more focal prints with bigger designs in more colours. While she has included a few coordinates that are specific to Moon Garden, the bulk of the collection is made up of hero prints. These are the prints that pull the entire collection together and do the bulk of the visual work in a sewing project.
After the introduction of Tiny Beasts, her previous collection based on small prints and coordinates, the next logical step was to go big! These prints are big, bold and full of life. Mood Garden is designed in two colour palettes; “From Dusk” and “Til Dawn”. Each palette focuses and a different fleeting moment of the evening processional. From Dusk focuses on the slow wind-down of the afternoon as the evening sets in with deep magentas and cool purples. The Til Dawn palette introduces the impending day when the darkness is being overtaken by the rising sun featuring deep golds, sharp peaches and saturated teal and mint.
