Just In: African wax prints and mudcloth, Nani Iro, dish toweling

by Gina

It has been a while since we’ve had a selection of African wax prints. I was excited to bust open the box today with our latest order. I love the bright colors and bold designs. With this order we also received an African mudcloth. It’s the black/white print in the upper right of the image. It’s quite special.

Also in this past week is “Priory Square” by Katy Jones for Art Gallery. i’m loving the cyclone fence design.

More blues from Cotton + Steel:

Absolutely gorgeous Nani Iro double gauze prints by Naomi Ito:

Moda continues to introduce fabulous new, fresh colors of dish toweling. Just in time for holiday entertaining and gift giving…stay tuned for all sorts of gift ideas!

Just in: African, Aboriginal and French...so international!

by Gina, pics by Heather

Such bright, beautiful prints in these two batches of African and Aboriginal designs. Above are the African prints, below are the Aboriginal prints.  Both groups really need to be rolled out to truly appreciate their beauty.  Please do so next time you’re in, it’s always a treat to see them in all their glory!

When I was ordering these prints at Quilt Market, it was really great to get the stories of these prints, what the various symbols mean.  As they are able to put these stories up on their site, I will certainly be passing them along.  It was a wonderful way to order fabric.

And, from France, these smart, chic, lovely apparel patterns from Deer and Doe arrived just the other day.  We’re delighted to have them.

And, what else you’ll see when you’re in next: yesterday I was opening a package of new stripey knits, some silk, double gauze….gorgeous and interesting additions to our apparel selection.  And, from Cloud 9, a few prints from their Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus line.  Cute, cute, and organic. 

See you soon!

Just in: organics and African imports

by Gina

I’ve been looking forward to this box for a while now and I was not disappointed when I opened it up yesterday.  The new prints from Birch Fabrics, one of our favorite suppliers of organic cotton prints, are crisp, fresh, easy colors and patterns to like and use.  I’m really enjoying the color combination in the multi block print on top.  This company provides high quality cotton, with a soft hand.  These prints are certified organic cotton printed with environmentally friendly dyes.  Over the years we’ve heard many requests for organic cotton and other environmentally friendly fabrics.  This is one company among a handful of ones we carry who provide just that.  I recommend you give these a look.  In the box was also a catalog of their future prints…I will say I’m super excited to get a slew of those new prints ordered!

Another group of new lovelies through the door are imported from Africa.  The picture doesn’t do them justice.  I’m really excited to provide something different and look forward to bringing more in.  Just ask us when you’re in next.  We’d love to show them off!
