The Many Uses of Western Fabric

Western Fabric has so many colors and choices. It depends on what you are doing with the fabric as to what you will need. There are printed fabrics that incorporate a wide variety of shapes, colors, and objects, as well as landscapes and scenes. These fabrics are used to make many things that are Western themed. When combined with lamps, furniture, light fixtures, floor covering, and tchotchkes, you will have the Western feel you want in your cabin or your house.

Where You Find This Fabric
For Western themed home d├ęcor, you will find denims, cottons, and sometimes blends when fabrics are used for furniture. You can find leather and animal hides throughout a Western themed home. Western furniture and accessories are popular in cabins but can be found in primary residences as well. The printed fabrics can look like sand, soil, grass, the prairie, or the sky. Paisley is a print used for Western decorating along with animal hide prints. A cow print can come in splotches of white and black. Other prints will have boots, windmills, saddles, cowboy hats, antique irons, ropes, lassos, old teapots, stars, lanterns, horses, cattle, flags, boots, spurs, water pumps, and many other farm and ranch items. Some fabrics are animated, or they can look like a picture or landscape.

Items with Fabric
Western Fabric can be used to upholster a couch, loveseat, sofa or chair. It can be used for curtains, tablecloths, table runners, napkins, aprons, pillows, duvet covers, comforters, blankets, sheets, bed skirts, towels, washcloths, shower curtains, and pictures when you are coordinating items. Quilts can be made with fabrics that have a Western theme and can be mixed and matched depending on the type of look the creator of the quilt wants. If the quilt is simple, you might find tans, brown, prints, and maybe some blues organized in a pattern or randomly put together. When the quilt is not quite so simple, you might see a landscape made out of prints that are positioned to create the mountains, sunsets, cattle, and cowboys on their horses if that is what the creator has envisioned.
