Meet the fabric designers on modes4u: Dan Stiles

Today we go organic. Not only is Dan Stiles the first fabric designer in our series who designs for the organic fabric label birch, but also one with an extremely colourful biography.

Dan Stiles

Children’s books, rock band posters, fabrics and more. The artwork of the American artist Dan Stiles can be found on an astonishing variety of products. Dan has worked with indie record labels, artists and major corporations; he has won numerous awards and has been reproduced in a wide variety of books and magazines. His poster art for many big names of the music industry is probably what he is best known for. But we know him best for his fabric designs of course.
Since we started selling organic fabrics from birch, Dan Stiles’ designs are present in our shop. He is moving into his third year of working with organic fabric label and has launched a variety of collections with them already. We mainly carry Dan Stiles fabrics from the Mod Quad collection, but will shortly receive lots of designs from his Safari Soiree line.
Dan totally enjoys working for an organic fabric label. In his work geometry and rhythm play a big role for his designs: “I’m inspired by exploring a theme and attempting to pare it down to something fun and visually striking. I strip an element down to basic forms, and then build it back up into a pattern or design.”
He is currently working on a new fabric line for birch called Marine Too, but has also just finished his first children’s book as well as several book covers and posters. Visit Dan Stiles website to find out more about his work.
