Succulent Fabric by Heather Givans for Crimson Tate!

by Cris Lubrick


Hi friends! We've been knee-deep in the trenches of new parenthood, but we're dusting off the blog because we have a really exciting project to share. Our great friend, Heather Givans, has created an amazing line for Windham Fabrics that is now available! Her designs center around succulents, a plant we're partial to for their low-maintenance attitude and a need for warm temps and sunshine. Heather works tirelessly to create amazing goods, design beautiful fabrics, and promote creativity in the Indianapolis area and around the country. You cannot leave her store, Crimson Tate, without feeling inspired and filled to the brim with good vibes-- even if you're the most novice seamstress and just enjoy pretty things and lots of laughs (ahem). 

Eric and Heather like to talk about their creative dreams, and this project and collaboration to document and feature her fabrics has been one long in the making. They brainstormed locations, we scouted some spots, and she decided on some of our favorites in the city-- Kristofer Bowman's shop-- The Inventorialist, the Garfield Park Conservatory, her own shop-- Crimson Tate, and our very own home. We've shared the link to the look book on a couple of other platforms, but you can find it and all of the fabrics that are available on Windham's website here! Eric appreciates Heather's eye for detail and the way her style and energy elevated the experience. So many people also contributed really great goods to display the range of this fun and lovely line. I'm allowed to brag on Eric and Heather because I love them, and I just think the photos are amazing.

Here are some of our favorites.
