Introducing ‘Suketchi’ – the new wallpaper and fabric by Quercus & Co
Australian textile and wallpaper designers Quercus & Co have created a divine new Japanese-inspired collection reflecting the natural world around us.
Suketchi (meaning ‘Japanese sketches’) includes five inky watercolour patterns, with each design reflecting the natural environment through painterly, expressive pattern and softly spoken colour.
The new Quercus & Co range was heavily influenced by the Japanese notion of symbols of the natural world – clouds, rivers, the sea, mountains – which are often depicted in Japanese art. The designs are also reminiscent of the traditional woodblock printing and painting style of Ukiyo-e, a movement which translates as “pictures of the floating world” and which flourished in Japan from the 17th through to the 19th centuries. Painted with ink but in the manner of woodblock, the white design is left ‘cut’ from the wash of colour.
