Utako Yamada: Karel Capek

Utako Yamada is the Japanese illustrator behind a tea-centric product brand called Karel Capek, named after the Czech author who invented the term “robot”. These are not the first of Yamada’s designs to be put on fabric by Kokka, but it might be the largest and most cohesive collection to date. These fabrics are a 85% cotton, 15% linen blend canvas. I’d love to hear what you’d do with the big busy border print — it’s awfully cute!

P.S. There’s a Karel Capek Flickr group where you can see and post images of all kinds of KC goods.
