Dutch Door Press for Kokka

Keli saw a glimpse of these fabrics at Spring Quilt Market, but I didn’t realize till seeing them at Fabricworm and Matatabi that they were designed by San Francisco’s Dutch Door Press, who have been letterpressing and screenprinting their Penn-Dutch and Euro-folk motifs since 2007 on Etsy — I’ve always wanted to see them design [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Seven Islands

Seven Islands, the wonderful folks who distribute Kokka, Nani Iro, Kiyohara, and Echino, is a perennial oasis at Quilt Market. I find that very few sewing and quilting enthusiasts can refute the quasi-magical properties of Japanese fabric companies. The major barrier is price but really, the golden ratio between quality, color and design makes it [...]

Ricco Ricco from Kokka

Nani Iro 2012

{¬†Waltz¬†} Nani Iro has her own website and webshop now (or maybe she always has, and I’ve somehow missed it). Her 2012 collection is up there now and of course it’s gorgeous. These are all double gauze prints with the exception of Element Collage, which is a knit, and Peaceful Cooing, which comes on both [...]

Kokka: Cosmic Zoo

I got quite a few inquiries when I posted about Soizic Gilbert‘s collection Cosmic Zoo for Kokka when it debuted at Quilt Market. It’s the Japanese company’s first organic cotton collection and apparently many of you can’t wait to get your hands on it! It’s out now, available at Superbuzzy, and Voodoo Rabbit in Australia [...]

Kokka Labels and Ads

… spotted at Quilt Taffy on Etsy. And while looking around for a Japanese fabric to feature today, I came across this text print, from the Maxine licensed collection by Hallmark for Robert Kaufman fabrics. Not Japanese, but it would go so well in all your Kumiko Fujita Patchwork 318-like endeavors! In fact there are [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Echino

    The booth showcasing Etsuko Furuya’s Echino Fall 2011 collection was full of greatness. It also demonstrated that you can do anything with cotton-linen that you can do with quilting cotton, and then some. At the bottom, two “bonus prints” that will be delivering to stores later — everything else is already out. Apologies [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Misc.

Here are some of the smaller collections and one-offs from Kokka and Seven Islands (Kokka’s U.S. distributor, who also works with several other Japanese manufacturers).       Did anyone note the designer of the owls and ladies above? What a great little collection, and I’m sure the laminates will be a hit.     [...]
