The Look for Less: Kelly Wearstler Gordian Weave Fabric

I have had a major crush on Kelly Wearstler’s Gordian Weave fabric for awhile now.  It is such a classic look, and in real life, the fabric is incredible.  It is weighty, luxurious, and the embroidery is beautifully done.

Of course, that is probably why it is $400 a yard.  (Update:  I did find it here for $326.40 a yard from this Etsy seller.)  It comes in three colorways, but the Ivory on Walnut is my fave.

I search Ebay every once in awhile for a remnant, and Shannon had it on her site this past summer.  (no, I didn’t get it, boo)   But on a quick little stop at Childress Fabrics in Dallas (for DFW folks, I went to the Midway Road one) last week, I spotted this beauty.

$21.95 a yard in all of its navy glory!  They had it in tangerine orange, too.

The fabric was called “Looped”, I believe, and a little more searching through Childress’ giant warehouse led me to the discovery of these more neutral colorways.

Can you believe it?!  The fabric is not as luxurious as the Kelly Wearstler, but for the look and $300+ savings, you can look past that, right?

Have you made any awesome “Look for Less” discoveries lately?

    WOW–did you get the maker name by chance?
    My mom lives in Dallas, but I don’t get there that often.

    Hi Emily, they don’t put manufacturer names on their fabrics, but I’m sure if you called them, gave them the fabric name (“Looped”), and described it, thy would know what you are talking about. I was there last Thursday, and the navy and orange colorways were on the first and second aisles on the left when you walk in the door facing Midway Road. Hope that helps! G

    Since my husband is still a student, i really appreciate looks for less. I have been loving the mason jar drink dispenser at Pottery Barn but at $69 per jar it was a bit more than I wanted to pay. World Market however has a very similar one for $19.99! Thanks for sharing your great fabric finds.
