Club Geluk

Club Geluk is a Netherlands-based company that “makes products for grown ups and children for a happy household.” They design their own fabrics and sell them by the meter as well as sewing them up into all kinds of textiles, from bedding and cushions to potholders and bags. I love the retro-kitschy-folky designs! They also [...]


I posted about BunnyBunnybyPinks more than a year ago, but had forgotten about them completely till I stumbled across their crazy sweet 60s-inspired fabrics again on Etsy. So I assume you have forgotten too and would appreciate the reminder! This is a brick-and-mortar and webshop in Osaka, Japan that produces their own exclusive fabric collection [...]

Kokka Trefle Scandi Prints

Folky/Pennsylvania Dutch/Scandinavian motifs have been a trend in fabrics for a couple years now. Are you tired of it yet? Not me. These prints are part of the new Trefle offerings from Kokka. Spotted at Fabricworm — there are a few other colorways, including black and grey, and a cute little mushroom coordinate. Related posts: [...]

Retro Outdoor Fabric

So you know how I was wishing for outdoor furniture last week? I went into IKEA just for breakfast yesterday and rolled out with the Tullerö set. Total impulse buy (I mean, what a bargain!), and even though it’s smallish it should suit our needs. The cushions, sold separately, were cruddy, so I passed on [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010: Alexander Henry – In the Kitchen

In the Kitchen is Alexander Henry’s ongoing retro-domestic collection. This year’s popular Farmdale was part of it, and I think these two upcoming collections will be just as coveted. Both are very 60s mod and cheery. The first group with the snails brings in the popular and versatile Heath fabric weave print to their quilting-weight [...]
