Indigo Summer 2015

Home / Prints / Indigo Summer 2015

Walking through the Summer Indigo show I have not seen  many new trends but  rather the continuation of the trends in new updated versions. Studios are doing a tremendous job to  create something new and exciting and salable prints every season  by mixing, placing, moving, re-coloring or abstracting familiar objects; big or small flowers, animal skins, fishes or birds, paisley, tropical motives, butterflies, symbols, zebras, giraffes, african and tribal motives.

Some studios who participated in Printsource were either took a chance and signed up to Indigo, some decided to drop the Summer show altogether. or the more adventurous ones jumped to Surtex. Missing the non participating studios from Indigo I decided to report not only what I have seen at the show but  also on studios working on  Spring 2015 trends.
