New: echino sateen fabrics

echino is now also available as cotton sateen. We are super excited about these news and can tell you: the fabrics feel amazing! Most echino fabrics have a share of linen and therefore are a bit rougher. The new echino sateens are super lightweight fabrics that are 100% cotton and feel very smooth and soft. We can totally see them being used for light blouses, skirts and dresses.

We now have many beautiful echino sateen fabrics

We are featured in a French poetry book

Our products have appeared in quite a few books already, but never in a book like that. Our photo of the funny ant gingham Timeless Treasures fabric is the cover photo of the French poetry book Haïku-Gnoni. It features Haiku poems, which is a short form of Japanese poetry, in French language. The author Mario Fulchignoni found the picture on our website and thought it would be a good title picture. Thanks for featuring our photo and congratulations on the publishing of the book.

Meet the San-X characters: Toromi

Today we meet Toromi, a funny French bulldog girl puppy, who became a member of the San-X family in 2012. Her name literally means “thick” because she looks and feels like Mochi – the typical Japanese rice cake dessert. Toromi is known for her slow and slightly stupid movements, but her clumsiness is super cute. Even though she is slow, she is super curious and changes position all the time. Her little pink teddy bear is her favourite toy. She loves to eat mochi, sweets and all kinds of soft food.

Isn’t she adorable?
