The 5th fabric collection by designer David Butler for Free Spirit fabrics under his brand guise Parson Gray, Empire reflects David's ongoing exploration of global design and richly muted jewel tones. Woven throughout are modern interpretations of ancient architecture and folk art from Japan, China, and India. These influences combined in hand-drawn elements create a story across three distinct color palettes. These three palettes are designed to work in harmony with each other, and also with past Parson Gray collections.
