Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – More Trefle

A cotton-linen vintage sewing-themed collection from Kokka’s Trefle line. I think the very last picture doesn’t belong to this mini group, but it wanted to be with the other sewing fabrics, so I said OK.

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Trefle

I’m not sure exactly what defines Kokka’s Trefle line — retro/European/mod/folk? But I know I love it to the ends of the earth. Here is a new assortment of big prints.

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Daisy Chain by Prints Charming

I’m sad to have missed Prints Charming‘s U.S. tour, but seeing their new collection Daisy Chain in action, complete with the beautiful embroidery that inspired it, was almost like having Cath and Kirsten there. Those oranges and corals are just magnetic, aren’t they?   Related posts: Prints Charming: Daisy Chain Fall Quilt Market 2011: Daisy [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Ruby Star Shining by Melody Miller

I got to spend a little more time with Melody Miller and Allison this time around at Quilt Market, and I can vouch for the fact that they’re as awesome as they seem. I just want everyone to move to Austin so I can hang out with them more! I am in love with Melody’s [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka — Nancy Wolff

Nancy Wolff is an experienced surface pattern designer and illustrator, and also Kokka’s newest fabric designer. I’ll let the placard below speak for me! This is definitely a more mainstream look for Kokka, but an awfully cute one. I love the multilingual greetings! Related posts: Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Trefle Fall Quilt Market [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Brush Your Teeth

This upcoming mini collection from Kokka doesn’t have a name, but the juxtaposition of soda and toothbrushes is so great. Very pop art. I’m picturing some unique bathroom and kitchen decor — what about you? Related posts: Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – More Trefle Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Cosmic Zoo Organic Fall [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – Cosmic Zoo Organic

Let’s jump right in then, shall we? Kokka is introducing a small collection of 100% organic fabrics called Cosmic Zoo, which is the textile design brand of French designer Soizic Gilibert. They had me at the samples. Related posts: Kokka: Cosmic Zoo Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka – More Trefle Fall Quilt Market 2011: Kokka [...]

Echino Fall 2011

There is a kind of dance in the design world over what the next “hip” animal will be. Seeing the Echino Fall 2011 collection, I imagine Etsuko Furuya popping and locking herself into the center ring and doing her classic moves. Birds. Deer. Owls. And everyone thinks, daaaaaamn, some say they’re played out now, but [...]

Prints Charming: Daisy Chain

Prints Charming has a new home with Kokka for their volume-produced fabric collections, and I think it suits them perfectly! I say volume-produced because their roots are in hand-screenprinted fabrics — making them as well as teaching others to make them. In fact, Cath and Kirsten are touring the U.S. as we speak, holding embroidery [...]
