IBM's lost, glorious fabric design

The real reason OS/2 failed… No well-designed fabrics.


Can anyone suggest a good artist who might be commissioned to design some Aloha fabric incorporating some images from vintage posters that I have? I know of places where I can have fabric made of an image, but I lack the talent to come up with something that looks right.


Yes, I have a friend who wins design competitions all the time on Spoonflower. message me for details.
