Who doesn’t like a good, abstract pattern? See brand new abstract print collection!
Abstract painteirly is such a popular trend – no wonder, everyone likes some craziness in their lives. Dots, specks, stripes, huge colour stains – it’s all there, making good looking compositions that are worth to stare on.
Choose one of abstract patterns and CottonBee will print it on a cotton woven or jersey fabric of your choice. Try voile, cretonne, gabardine, satin, linen… or jersey: single jersey, interlock, sweatshirt jersey! Abstract patterns might be a good choice for cushions, curtains or even clothes that really stand out! See our highlighted patterns below or visit our site to see whole new abstract print collection!
