Kokka’s distinctive prints are always one of the high points at Market. A portion of the booth was dedicated to Ellen Luckett Baker‘s new line Stamped (which is new in stores now). Inspired by hand-prints, the simple shapes and designs are perfectly suited to the cotton-linen blend fabric and the amazing array of colors. Ellen’s fabric was made up into an incredible variety of quilts and bags. Look for Stamped in stores in early 2013.
Kokka’s booth also featured a collection called Emo Emo by Kamiya Kanako. Featuring an owl print that doesn’t look like the typical owl print and beetles, this is a fun line. Find it this spring …
New brushed cottons (think a fine quality, drapey flannel) from Nani Iro and a collection including double gauze, called Muddy Works from Tomotake, made for some of the most memorable garments at Market.
And some more miscellaneous sightings from the stacks:
