Vanelli at Mood 2011
WGSN-homebuildlife reports live from MoOD 2011 in Brussels, highlighting the emerging trends from the influential fabrics fair:

Decorative ikat: Ikat is applied to decorative patterns and is given a contemporary update by blending contrasting colours together so that they shimmer across the fabric and through the designs.

Blurred geometric: A trend that softens the geometric, creating a more hand-crafted feel.

Kilim inspired: Turkish Kilims have had a revival and are recoloured and reinterpreted in jacquards and prints, as well as in cut velour velvet, as seen at Algemene.
