Looks like wedding cake

"They look like wedding cake." That is what I was told when I received the call that my daugther's window treatments were completed and ready for installation. This Catania Silks Indian silk is stunning.
 
Carpeting: Patterson, Flynn & Martin (to the trade) 
Window hardware: Kirsch (sold through the trade/dealers)
There are rare times when my search for the perfect textile takes me in another direction than the D & D Building in NYC. Catania Silks is to-the-trade only offerings, but is a source for designers to keep on hand for Indian silks that are made beautifully and priced well. I needed twenty-one yards of textile for my daughter's window treatment. I was not into spending a king's ransom just for the textile yet I refused to compromise on beauty or quality so I went with Catania Silks.  
This Catania Silks cotton animal print is adorable! This is a choice I'm eyeing for a space I'm designing for two one year old granddaugthers.
Do you have a gem of a source (aka designer secret) that you are willing to share for sourcing textile, whether it be to-the-trade or not?

I love Cantania Silks too, I haven't seen their animal print before. Your daughter's draperies are beautiful and I love the gold rod. I'm redoing my family room windows and I'm painting my rod gold !
