Top 5 Most Popular Southwestern Fabrics

Southwestern culture is inspired by nature – valleys, trees, rocks, sand, desert animals, and more. These themes are clearly expressed in most southwestern fabrics. The earthy tones depict the color of The Valley from sunrise to sunset. Here are the 5 most popular southwestern fabrics that can transform your Arizona home:


Geometric patterns are recurring themes in southwestern fabric. Sedona has a colorful geometic pattern. You can easily mix and match these with plain colors, or just use it on a whole piece. The fabric is made of acrylic, polyester and cotton. It comes in 4 variations, namely Sunset, Cactus, Desert, and Canyon. These variation comes in earth colors that can be easily paired with leather or any plain, dark fabric. 

Desert Saguaro

This fabric features a dramatic Southwestern scene. The sprawling mountains, Saguaro cacti and the colorful sand is picturesque, so it’s perfect for accent pieces like valances and benches. Desert Saguaro is made of 60% cotton and 40% polyester.
