I was inspired to use big, bold, new Designtex fabrics for TED 2012 in Long Beach and Palm Springs. Interestingly,  these new fabrics were influenced by a clothing collection acquired by The Museum of International Folk Art and the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, Santa Fe. Lots of patterns and textures, a little retro but all new. They have some interesting shots and descriptions on their site that are worth checking out.
