Matching Umbrella and Bag Sets
When we print fabric for our umbrellas we also have the option of making matching umbrella and bag sets. As you can see from the umbrella and bag set pictured here, we created the overall pattern so that when it was printed we could turn the design any direction and make bags or umbrellas. This set even had a matching cosmetic case to complete the set. The one thing you want to keep in mind when designing a textile repeat like this is that the design can be viewed from all directions and that it will not matter how the design is matched up it will still be attractive. The main reason for that type of care in the textile design is that you want to have maximum efficiency in the fabric usage and have as little waste as possible.
Another attractive aspect of printing yard goods for umbrellas is that the color penetration through the fabric is very rich as you can see here on the interior view of the umbrella. The colors used to print running yard goods saturate the fabrics more than other kinds of printing and in the case of dark colors, it may be important to consider fabric printing as a solution. We can evaluate that when we begin to discuss your umbrella project.
Interior Print Umbrellas
Interior print umbrellas allow you to have a fully printed image on the interior of your umbrella and a solid color for the exterior. Sometimes, you want a solid color exterior layer with a logo and the surprise of the image or a color on the interior of your umbrella. In this case, we created a matching tote bag to the image on the interior of this umbrella. If you look closely we had two different images on the umbrella repeating all the way around the interior layer of the umbrella which gives it a colorful flow and does not feel redundant. Since this interior print umbrella is not a pattern but a famous painting, we wanted to be sure it felt like a complete image. This set was created for the Detroit Institute of the Arts and features a Diego Rivera mural in their collection.
The tote bag handles were matched to the black hardware of the umbrella in this set to complete the overall effect, and the exterior layer of the umbrella was also in black fabric.
