New Knits and Cottons by Hamburger Liebe

{ Happy } Susanne Firmenich aka Hamburger Liebe‘s debut collections for Hilco were (naturally) a big success! Her subsequent collections have been coming out over the past few months and it looks like there will be a steady supply of her great prints for all ages on jersey knits, cottons, and coordinating ribbons. You can [...]

Magical Fairy Tale Prints by Nadja Girod

I subscribe to Nadja Girod‘s blog Smil and always enjoy her adventures in screenprinting and digital printing. She lives in Berlin and runs print workshops, and sells stuff through her online shop. Every time I scroll by a post I always say “someone needs to get this girl a fabric collection!” which I also said [...]

Hamburger Liebe for Hilco

In addition to Michas Stoffecke, Hilco is also producing Susanne Firmenich (Hamburger Liebe)’s fabrics on Oeko-Tex certified organic plain woven cotton. It’s a big wonderful group in three colorways, called Dutch Love. In fact the first printing has already sold out and a reprint is happening as we speak. And … matching ribbons! I have seen Hilco [...]

Hamburger Liebe for Michas Stoffecke

You may know German designer Susanne Firmenich, aka Hamburger Liebe, from her Spoonflower designs, which I have featured here before. Some of her Spoonflower designs and dozens more were picked up by two European companies — Hilco, which I’ll show you in the next post, and Michas Stoffecke. Michas Stoffecke has produced a whole slew of designs, and if you count up all [...]

New From Boosterseat

Boosterseat is Anda Corrie of Berlin, Germany. She sells her Spoonflower digitally printed fabrics (and coasters and sewing patterns) on Etsy. I’ve posted about her before but since then she’s added tons of new designs to her shop. I was tickled by Hopscotch — you usually think big, bright, more-is-more with digital printing, but it’s [...]

Kitzbühel from Westfalenstoffe

Westfalenstoffe is a fabric manufacturer based in Muenster, Germany. You may have come across their classic collection which they have had in print for 75 years! (Bunte Fabrics, which is sadly closing up shop, still has two of the prints in stock at this writing.) In addition to cotton wovens they also produce coated fabrics, [...]

Hilco Digital Prints

I’ve been wondering if/when this would happen — a major manufacturer offering digitally printed fabrics. German apparel fabrics company Hilco is the first I have known of. This print, Ink Rings, is on a viscose jersey knit and is sold through the Netherlands-based Jersey Fashion (who ships worldwide, for those of you looking for women’s [...]

byGraziela

{ 1,2,3 } German designer Graziela Preiser’s work was very popular in 1970s Germany (how great is this archival photo?). A few decades later, she teamed up with her daughter Nina to reissue some of her classic designs under the name byGraziela. The company offers bedding, crockery, towels, posters and wall hangings, bunting, bags, a [...]

… The number and magnitude of natural disasters lately has been really frightening — Haiti, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, and now Japan. I’m sitting comfortably here at my computer, trying to picture what it would be like to have a terrifying earthquake then having but two minutes to escape something like this. Of course I [...]
