Tas-ka New Collection

Dutch label Tas-ka has a new collection of fabrics and textile products called Schemer, Lommer, Dageraad, inspired by “the elusiveness of what happens in the early morning and evening, with the clear colours of the rising and setting sun and the darkness of the night.” The six prints are each printed on a 4 oz/sq [...]

Mini Moderns: Whitby

I have always wanted UK company mini moderns to bring their wonderful wallpaper designs to fabric meterage, and now they have!

Whitby is hand screen printed in London in three colorways onto 53″ (137cm) [...]

They also sell directly to the public through their website and brick-and-mortar outlet stores in Mississippi and Tennessee. Here’s just [...]

John Lewis: Spheres

I was looking over the latest fabric offerings at John Lewis, which I gather is a slightly more upscale Target in the U.K. (If Target sold fabric, that could be dangerous.) a department store on par with Macy’s or Nordstrom in the U.S., only with fabric (dreamy!). Spheres, from John Lewis’ exclusive in-house collection, is [...]
