Spring Quilt Market 2013: Kokka – Echino

birdsblueblack

Preparing for Seven Islands‘ booth (the US distributor of Kokka) can be overwhelming, in the most splendid of ways. In addition to its prominent licensed collections from Echino, Nani Iro, Melody Miller, Ellen Luckett-Baker, and newcomer Melissa Wood, aka melimba, Kokka also has an insane presence with its in-house design team. At Spring Market, they officially released Cocca, or its nickname CC, an apparel-specific line of prints. We’ll be seeing these all over the next few posts. But first up, Echino by Etsuko Furuya.

Her latest Decoro line is beautiful (shocking, I know) with many of the prints in the 61” cotton linen blends. The vibrant combination of purple and red has long been a favorite of mine and leave it to Echino to do it right!

    Haha, I never thought I would see rhino fabric. The triangles on that print are so clever too!

    Beautiful post, of course, any post with Kokka…
    I’m amazed at how thorough your Quilt Market coverage has been. It blows me away every day that there’s still more to see! Thank you so much for these wonderful posts!
