Our favourite product of the week: Kokka sailor fabric

We got a new delivery from Kokka this week and are still adding the wonderful Japanese fabrics to our shop. As we got a few fabrics with maritime designs and will also be getting lots more in the next months, we decided to create the new fabric category “sailor fabric“. And our favourite product of the week, the cute sailor fabric with squares, definitely belongs in that category. Ahoy!

Lots of new Robert Kaufman fabrics

With lots of colours and lots of adorable designs. Just in the right time for a fun summer project. We added many new Robert Kaufman fabrics from the USA to our shop in the last couple of days. Some designs might look familar already, and…. they are. Because a couple of our most popular animal designs arrived in new colours, such as the cute monkey fabric, the owl fabric or whale fabric. But there are also completely new prints, for example with cute butterflies or with lions.

You should also check out all the new flower fabrics. We got some really high-class ones that have beautiful but discreet gold or silver embellishments. And even though summer is around the corner (depending on where you live of course), we highly recommend that you take a look at the autumn fabrics from the “Shades of the Season Metallic 5” collection. The golden and soft autumn colours are just amazing! But we also have lots of fabrics with bright colours perfect for summer.

In the next weeks we will be adding new Kokka fabrics from Japan and the lastest stuff from echino.

New echino collection, Kokka fabrics and Robert Kaufman in our shop

In the last weeks we added lots of new fabrics from Robert Kaufman and Kokka to our shop. Just last week the newest echino collection followed. And the designs are so lovely and powerful again. We got each one in several colours, so you can see how it looks in different shades and pick your favourite. We also have some additional colours of “older” designs, such as the funny echino London fabric or the echino glasses fabric.

Besides that our last echino delivery also contained the whole “dot dot dot” collection. That means 13 pretty polka dot fabrics in different colours. And we also got a few items of the “Solid” collection. Those are probably the first single-coloured fabrics we ever had in our shop, we’re all excited to see how you like them.

So there it is, lots of beautiful stuff waiting to be turned into colourful shirts, skirts, dresses, curtains, table clothes or all the other things you want to use it for.

All echino and Kokka fabrics now online

Pretty, beautiful, gorgeous. We finished adding all the Kokka fabrics from our last delivery to our shop. So now you can find the latest echino collection, which looks amazing. The designs by Etsuko Furuya are always really lovely, but each time we get new fabrics, we are blown away how vividly coloured they are. For example check out that new scooter fabric. Isn’t it super cool and colourful? We got the design in 4 different colours, so you can pick your favourite one.

We also got a couple of new Kokka fabrics designed by Nancy Wolff. These super cute animal prints will be great if you want to sew something for children. On two designs you find the word ‘Hello’ translated into many different languages, so the kids might even end up improving their language skills :-).

Meeting with Kokka in Hong Kong

We work with Kokka fabrics closely together, of course it helps that they have an office in Hong Kong. 😉 Therefore, we have a very good business relationship with them and visit their office every once in a while to talk in person, discuss future plans and collaborations and give them some feedback we received from our customers regarding their fabrics. Today’s meeting was very important for us because we wanted to discuss the sales of Kokka fabrics in Germany. When we started working with them they told us that some fabrics are not allowed to Germany because another company has the exclusive import rights for those. We agreed to that and followed their rules. After 2 years we became a very good customer for them and they decided to review this arrangement. Alan and I went to their office to discuss this issue. The meeting was very successful, we are now allowed to sell almost all Kokka fabrics to Germany. We are very happy about that and our customers must be even more happy. I got countless emails before asking why we cannot sell those fabrics to Germany.

After the meeting we had a Chinese lunch together with the boss and one more staff and chatted about business, travelling to Japan and other topics. It’s nice when you know your suppliers in person and also know something private about them. It is a lot more fun doing business like that.
