Sgraffito: Pen & Ink Art

Sgraffito is an Italian term that means a form of decoration made by scratching through a surface to reveal a lower layer of a contrasting color, typically done in plaster or stucco on walls, or in slip on ceramics before firing. Sgraffito is also the name of a new fabric line from Contempo Studio by Elise K featuring florals, paisleys, leaves, geometrics, and textures. These pen-and-ink-style designs, done in black and ivory with brown, gray, and taupe accents, create a stunning collection with modern appeal.
