How Southwest Culture Has Become Mainstream

During the craziness of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is helpful to take your mind off the chaos by stirring up some creativity. Now that you are confined to activities within your home, you finally have time to focus on the design and functionality of your household, along with a deep spring cleaning.

Explore different styles that you have always admired, but never had the chance to exemplify in the style of your home. Today, we explore the beauty of Southwestern Patterns in fabrics that can be used around the house.

Fabrics That Go is based in Tucson, Arizona- where Southwestern Culture is a lifestyle. Southwestern culture is influenced by the desert, warm sunsets, cactus & succulents, Native American Art, and more! 

In fact, Southwestern culture has gained mainstream recognition worldwide, with customers all over the world seeking unique Southwestern fabrics.

The Roots of Southwestern Culture

The Pueblo, Navajo, and Apache tribes have had a rich artistic history. These tribes, specifically the Navajo, produced beautifully designed woven blankets that later evolved into rugs.

Textiles with a Southewestern flair came later in the 19th century, with those crafted by different tribes featuring distinguishable traits. Most of them incorporated strong geometric shapes that are easily recognizable today.

The Appeal of the American Southwest

As a result of the Native American tribes in the area, American Southwest culture borrows heavily from Native art and motifs, inspired by nature and faith among the natives. The role of Southwest culture in the United States runs deep, and has even oozed out onto numerous communities outside of the United States, who have been captivated by the richness of the unique style. From imagery of cactus, sandstone palettes to spiritually-inspired arts and patterns, it’s no surprise that many have embraced Southwestern culture.

Southwestern Decor is trending on platforms such as Pinterest or Houzz, among other design applications and establishments. Home decorators are finding the Southwestern decor feels minimalist but not at all sterile or underdone. It is not necessary to go full Southwestern to take advantage of the aesthetic; plenty of pieces would fit seamlessly into your home, regardless of what decor profile you already have going on. Southwestern fabrics can add a splash of personality, with an upholstered accent chair, pillows, or even curtains.
