Japanese Fabric of the Week: Kobayashi Tiny Forest

Tiny Forest from new-to-me Japanese manufacturer Kobayashi, spotted at Purl Soho in three colorways. It’s a little on the pricey side, but exquisite!

    okay, is it just me, or does it look like they photographed the fabric samples upside down? I keep wanting to flip it in my brain. As I tried to do some research and find other sources online, I couldn’t find any other images of the fabric. Who knows?! Regardless, I love it! and each of the colorways are great!

  2. Suze says:

    really charming, love the colorways, but I would use it in the other direction! Feels upside down to me.

  3. Katy says:

    I love the colors, but like the others it does feel upside down to me.

  4. KathyH says:

    yes I agree. I put one on my desktop and flipped it and it looks great! The green lines must be stems.

    Really pretty when you flip it!

  5. Kim says:

    Ha! You all are so right. I feel like a doofus! I rotated the images so they’re the right way now. I did like them upside down too though!

  6. Melimba says:

    Ha! Don’t feel like a doofus! That’s how Purl Soho put them in their shop! THEY should feel silly. Ha! Jk.

    Oh, got your book in the mail, and honestly, it is AWESOME!!! Kim, I can’t believe how many cool things I’m learning!! GREAT job on an awesome resource! (and it’s so pretty to look at too!) way to be!!!!
