ANATOMIE LIPS IN ORANGE

Never expected to see this Anatomic series ”Mouth” / ”Lips” textile in orange! Usually when you see these rare printed textiles with this pattern, they are red. It’s actually also the first time I see this textile design with a paper tag from the original manufacturer Poul Boheim too. It comes from a person who […]
