Today we received a big delivery of the newest Kokka fabrics from Japan + some restocked fabrics we sold out already. We are so excited to finally have the newest fabrics in our shop. Those Japanese fabrics are just gorgeous and so cute. The quality is as usual perfect and the prints are super accurate and colourful. We also received another delivery of bento boxes as well today.

Zakka Life Project: Miniature Stuffed Pillows

Remember I wrote about the Zakka Life Blog and that we are their sponsor now? Jessica received our fabrics and created an amazingly cute project: small stuffed pillows for her daughter’s dolls house. Have a look at her blog post. When you see the first picture, you think those pillows are normal size pillows, but then you scroll down and see that they are actually tiny ones. So cute! We love them! By the way, you can buy the fabric she used in our shop: animal matryoshka fabric

New Blog design and Twitter background

We got a new blog design for this blog today! I wanted to have a cuter blog template than the one we used before. Therefore we decided to use one of our favorite and topselling Japanese fabrics as a background picture. It is the pink matryoshka animals fabric by Kokka. At the same time, we also changed our Twitter background to match it to the blog. You can have a look at our Twitter account here: modes4u on Twitter I hope you guys like the new design 🙂

Sponsor of Zakka Life

We are sponsor of the Zakka Life website! Jessica, the creative mind behind this great blog, approached us and asked if we would be interested in sponsering one of her projects and in return our banner is displayed on her website. We agreed and sent her some cute Japanese fabrics. I am looking forward to see what she is going to make with them. Below you can see our cute banner showing some of our favourite Japanese fabrics. If you like, you can place this banner on your website as well.

Visit from Kokka Japan

Today we had a visit from a Kokka employee because they wanted to show us the newest designs they just released. That’s so super convenient when the suppliers come to your office to show you their newest collection. I must say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE their new collection. There are so many adorable, cute, kawaii, lovely fabrics, it will be really hard to choose which ones we will order. Unfortunately, I cannot order all of them because there is a budget limit 😉 Below you can see some of my favourite new fabrics from Kokka. I hope we will get them for our shop soon.

Delivery of Kokka fabrics from Japan

Today, we received a delivery of almost 40 bolts of Kokka fabrics from Japan. I was waiting for them impatiently because I couldn’t wait to see all the new cute patterns. We got Kokka fabrics with Matroshka dolls, kittens, Alice in Wonderland, toadstool, peach blossom, deers, monkeys, skulls and many more.

We had some fun in the office building a fabric pyramid with all the fabric bolts and took some pics.

New order placed with Kokka

I have another update from Kokka: We sell the fabrics from our first order with Kokka crazily and therefore we decided to place a new order now to prevent running out of stock. We got one wholesale order from a shop in Germany and therefore we can combine the 2 orders, ship them together and save some shipping costs. We ordered over 35 bolts of Kokka fabrics! They will be shipped by ship. I am looking forward to get them, the expected arrival date is 21.10.2009. I will definitely post a blog post when the fabrics arrive. So keep coming back for news!

1st Kokka Fabric order arrived

Today we finally received our first order of Kokka fabrics from Japan. They were sent by courier directly from Kokka’s warehouse and it took only 1 day to arrive. It’s definitely an advantage to be in Hong Kong 😉

We ordered fabrics with prints like christmas deers, matryoshka animals, cute bears, black kitty, toadstools, Alice in Wonderland and matryoshka dolls. Below you can see 2 pics I took to show you how the fabric bolts were delivered. They came in 2 huge long packages wrapped with a very strong paper outside and plastic wrapping inside.

New Kokka Fabric Swatches

Today we received new fabric swatches from Kokka in Japan. They are the newest designs from September 2009. Kokka releases every month new designs, therefore we get every month new swatches delivered and based on them, we place our orders.

Sorry about writing so much about Kokka in the last time but we are selling them so well since we started working with them together and we get updates about new designs often. I just want to share all these exciting news with you. There will be blog posts about our other products coming next, I promise!
