Again, there is so much to show you from Japanese fabric company Kokka that I’m going to break it up into a few posts: Echino and Nani Iro will get their own. (The Nani Iro post will include a giveaway courtesy Matatabi Japanese Fabric, so stay tuned!)
First up. Being the mother of a young boy, these prints grabbed me immediately. Though I always complain about all boy prints being either vehicle, sport, or tool themed, I wouldn’t mind it so much if they all were as cool as this I wouldn’t mind so much. These fabrics can truly grow with your child, from cradle to … middle school maybe?
Kokka had the best selection of boy-leaning prints I’ve probably every seen, actually. Here are some more.
A coordinating collection of prints all on one fabric. Here is a car version.
Not Lego print (not its official name!) previously featured on Japanese Fabric of the Week.
I’m also swooning over the floral and folky offerings. Some are from their Trefle line, others aren’t (didn’t get full identifying info on all of them, sorry! That’s what happens when you’re swooning).
Not only are those cross-stitch linen prints fantastic on their own, they are double-sided fabric – the cross-stitch print on one side and the polka dot on the other. Isn’t that cool? I have no idea how it’s done. Leave it to the Japanese.
And finally, a couple cute character prints.
As we learned in the Japanese Fabric of the Week post in which another Eau de Mer print was featured, the text translates to “Starry Sky. Seawater”.
I love you, Kokka. There. I said it.
Can’t get enough? There is more on Flickr.
