Cali Collection Activewear Textiles by Chris Olson
The Cali Collection style combines natural elements with a modern twist. Chris loves rich saturated colors combined with unexpected patterns and textures. She is drawn to the idea of a psychedelic take on camouflage found in nature. Think tropical fish, lush plants, and beautiful insects. She also likes the idea of the pattern transporting you to an exotic place where the nature becomes almost otherworldly. One of her favorite playgrounds is the beach. The way the light reflects off the water is always inspiring. Water and surf inspired. Motion and reflection. Trends: Bold geos. Photo real images. Hand painted. Woven. Many patterns are available as technically correct repeats.
