Nani Iro: Spring 2009

Naomi Ito’s Spring 2009 Nani Iro collection for Kokka (translated link) is now available in stores. The painterly designs are at subtle and gorgeous in color and line, yet bold in pattern and scale. Her signature florals and Asian- and Scandinavian-influenced abstract shapes are once again printed on double gauze, one on a cotton-linen blend double gauze. There are also a few cotton-linen blends, linen canvas, and double knits. The new wood buttons are simply amazing.

If you’re at a loss for what to do with these unique fabrics, just have a look at the sewing page for ideas.

  1. My best recommendation for Double Gauze – Little girl nightgowns. I wanted to try out the super soft and delicate Double Gauze for myself and had no idea what to make with it. Then my 4 year old held it to her face, closed her eyes and said how soft it was. I started on her Nightgown right away. It has held up really nicely in the washer and dryer too!

    The floral prints are beautiful! I just finished a small journal clutch using one of her older prints and it came out lovely.
