Indian Summer Prints

I came across this site while looking for something totally different and fell in love with this pattern in particular. One can drift off to sleep and dream of being in India, not only for this beautiful design but also for the description of it.

Inspiration for Indian Summer:

Under the sweltering sun, the heart of the Indian summer unfolds many a sensory extravagance. The ambrosial sweetness of sun ripened mangoes, the heady fragrance of velvety roses, and the quiet rustle of opulent silk saris. Indian Summer’s saffron hued ground provides a brilliant backdrop to the delicate ornamentation of the unusual three leaf, rose kissed petite paisley print replete with emerald green highlights. Indian Summer conjures up an abstract edible quality of rose petals atop a lush mango sorbet...
