Rilakkuma’s Top 3 Valentine’s favourites from our shop

Are you in a romantic mood already? Our big office Rilakkuma definitely is, he can’t wait for Valentine’s Day to come. Today he even went through our warehouse and picked all his favourite items for Valentine’s Day. These are his top 3:

1. Heart fabrics

Doesn’t he look lovely with all those heart fabrics on his lap? These are just a few of the heart fabrics we carry in our shop. If you can sew there are endless possibilities for using them, but also if you are not an expert on the sewing machine you’ll enjoy them: use them as decoration or include them in your crafting activities.

Rilakkuma knows very well that his own products are pretty cute themselves. Here he selected some stationery items like folders, memo pads, letter sets or towels with lovely heart designs. And Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori must not be missing of course.

What customers make with our fabrics: apron & tote

We’re always super happy when our customers show us what they’ve made with our products by posting pictures on our Facebook page or sending us emails. Lately we saw two super adorable projects we also want to show you.

One of our Spanish customers makes incredible aprons with our fabrics. We have already seen quite a few as she makes so many different ones. Lately the pink and black apron for which she used our Timeless Treasures sweets fabric caught our attention. We totally love the colour combination and think that the design look beautiful.

A German customer sewed a wonderful tote bag from our Robert Kaufman Sushi fabric. It’s a super funny idea and the bag will definitely attract a lot of attention.

Valentine’s Day craft: Washi Tape heart

Just in time for Valentine’s Day we embellished our office with Washi Tape. We just took a couple of our pink Washi Masking Tapes and stuck a big heart on one of our white office walls. The whole project didn’t take longer than 10 minutes and was lots of fun to make. You can do any shape you want or write any text you desire.

It is a great and super easy way to decorate for Valentine’s Day. You can surprise your sweetheart with a personal love message or take your picture with your Washi Tape creation to give it away as a card.

Meet the fabric designers on modes4u: Jane Shasky

Today we introduce a fabric designer who is truly in love with nature. Jane Shasky finds her inspiration in the beauty outdoors and transfers this onto her fabric designs for Robert Kaufman.

Jane Shasky

Jane Shasky’s designs have a very special aura. She paints beautifully detailed watercolors celebrating the verdant flowers, plant and bird-life she observes around her home in the USA. Her love of nature can be seen on calendars, greeting cards, home décor, scrapbooking and fabrics of course. She has been working for Robert Kaufman for more than 3 years and created lots of beautiful designs with flowers or fruit.
We carry a couple of Jane Shasky fabrics from the Fresh Strawberry collection. Lots of her other Robert Kaufman collections also revolve around a very special fruit like in Fresh Cherries, Fresh Blueberries, Fresh Cranberries or Fresh Apples. Her love for nature, which is her main inspiration, grew strong since she was a child: “My most cherished early memories are of time spent with my grandmothers, Rose and Viola, surrounded by lilacs and peonies in their country gardens. They planted their love of nature in me like seeds, so throughout my life much of my inspiration has sprouted from that deep connection they showed to me.”
The American designer is currently painting for her line of 2015 calendars. If you want to know more about her work or want to see astonishing photographs of nature, visit Jane Shasky’s blog.

Our favourite product of the week: our new Re-Ments

This week we added lots of new stuff to our shop and it was a colourful mixture: fabrics, earphone jacks AND Re-Ments. We got three new sets which just got released. We already announced the super cute Hello Kitty Supermarket Re-Ment and the Rilakkuma Happy Snack Re-Ment, but we also have a wonderful new set, that will make a lot of girls’ hearts beat faster: Disney Princess nail stickers. What a variety! So Re-Ments are clearly our favourite product of the week.

Out cutest Valentine’s Day products

We have already seen the first Valentine’s Day shop decorations and dinner promotions here in Hong Kong, so obviously it’s time to think about Valentine’s Day. So we do! In the last months we got lots of new items with hearts, which are perfect for Valentine’s Day DIY projects or as little presents.

You can find lots of heart fabrics in our shop at the moment, and in the next weeks more will follow, for example cute heart jersey fabrics by Robert Kaufman. We also have lots of deco and Washi tapes with heart patterns. They are a great accessory to craft cards or wrap gifts. But they can also be the main part of your present, e.g. you can use them to decorate a frame with a photo of you and your loved one or you can stick a love message on a wall.

Self-made chocolates are a great personal present for Valentine’s Day. We carry several chocolate molds and even a complete chocolate set, so that you can make your own yummy creations super easily. And of course there are lots of hearty stationery products like folders, letter sets, stickers and more.

Exclusive Chinese New Year Rilakkuma plushies

Hissssss, what a cute surprise. The Chinese New Year will start soon and for the ‘year of the snake’ San-X released a super cute 2013 Chinese New Year Rilakkuma limited edition. And we actually have the adorable plush toys in our shop. This is really a great honour, because only a handful of retailers in the whole world are allowed to sell them outside of Japan. We’re super proud and totally in love with the three plushies.

Rilakkuma, Korilakkuma and Kiiroitori are wearing funny green snake caps or costumes and also have a cute snake pet with them. The bears hold little wallets and wish for lots of money. All plushies have a ‘2013’ embroidery, so they can be a great lucky charm for this year.

Be fast if you want one, this is a limited edition and we won’t get those plushies again.
