SARA REICHARDT design textile designs are inspired by nature, architecture and her travels throughout the world. She creates designs that are graphic, bold and modern through her use of shape, texture, form and repetition. Sara hopes to bring her love of color and ‘out of the box’ personal aesthetic to others.
This collection was started several years ago with the imagery and idea of Morocco. I revisited and refined my original pattern after my dream trip to Morocco in 2017. The collection includes four patterns and thirty-six colors to choose from. I hope you enjoy the bohemian and energetic spirit of these designs!
Casablanca is a port city and commercial hub in western Morocco, fronting the Atlantic Ocean. The city's French colonial legacy is seen in its downtown Mauresque architecture, a blend of Moorish style and European Art Deco.
The Casablanca is the most pared down option in the collection. The pattern utilizes arches and geometric designs from the Moorish influence, but consists of two streamlined motifs that reference the more sleek Art Deco style.
Kasbah refers to multiple buildings or structures behind a tall defensive wall with no windows. They were usually in the center of town, often on a hill and housed the local leader.
Rock the Kasbah… on your walls! This is the densest motif of the four patterns. It combines two concentric designs made up of various geometric shapes that pack a visual punch.
Marrakech is a major economic center in Morocco and home to mosques, palaces and gardens. The medina is a densely packed, walled medieval city dating to the Berber Empire, with mazelike alleys where thriving souks sell traditional textiles, pottery and jewelry. It is a scene full of life, culture and history.
The Marrakech pattern is the most intricate of the collection; made of symmetrical, geometric shapes. It is a combination of designs that come together in an orderly fashion.
The Sahara is the largest desert in the world and known as “The Living Africa”. The Sahara includes not only the iconic sand dune fields, but also arid mountains, plateaus, sand and gravel covered plains, shallow basins and large oasis depressions.
This pattern includes two spherical geometric designs. The simplicity and spareness of the smaller configuration puts more focal attention on the larger and more intricate motif in the pattern.
