I knew the alleged Kokka copying of a Helen Dardik design had to be a fluke — Kokka has a great reputation for integrity, and they have an abundance of original, insanely talented, and forward-thinking designers. Copying is just way, way below them.
I received a copy of an email exchange with Kokka from a shop owner who lodged a complaint and returned her bolt of fabric. Kokka replied that the design was purchased from an outside contracted designer, that they will be taking the print off the market and destroying remaining stock, and will be implementing more stringent standards in the future.
This was a swift and decisive action from Kokka. I don’t know whether Helen will be compensated in any way, but this is far more than you get from most allegations of copyright infringement.
