We finally have some Heather Ross fabric and Echino fabric from Japan! They are gorgeous fabrics and so beautiful. We also ordered lots of other new Kokka fabrics and we just love them all. Kokka’s fabric quality is amazing, the prints are as always perfect and beautiful colours and the designs are just too cute 😉 We got prints with cute frogs, owls, Alice in Wonderland, matryoshka, deers, Eau de Mer fabrics, and many many more. It was really hard, but I chose some of my favorite Japanese fabrics from Kokka:

New Kokka fabric swatches

We just received the newest Kokka fabric swatches from Japan. There is one fabric that is really super, super super cute! It is a thick cotton fabric with really adorable deer heads and little flowers. I love this fabric! It comes in 5 colours, white, yellow, pink, blue and black. All 5 colours are so kawaii, we are going to get all 5 of them for our shop. I took a picture of the pink deer fabric, isn’t that the most adorable fabric you have ever seen?

Handmade Michael Miller buttons

It is really really difficult to find cute buttons on the market. Most of our suppliers don’t have any buttons or only have a few choices. We often have to wait for weeks to get an order of buttons. Therefore, we decided to make our own buttons with our pretty fabrics and sell them in our shop. We chose our favorite Michael Miller fabrics this time and made some really adorable fabric buttons. We also have buttons made with Japanese fabric: Kokka buttons.

Japanese Kokka buttons available

Unfortunately, Kokka doesn’t make fabric buttons with their cute fabrics, but we do get lots of questions from customers asking about Kokka buttons. Therefore we decided to make them ourselves. We do have quite a big selection of Kokka fabrics now and many of them are suitable for making buttons. The size of the characters on the fabric are just the right size for buttons. We used our popular Matryoshka Animals fabric and the winter deer fabric for making the first buttons. See below some pictures of how we make those buttons and the finished cute Kokka buttons:

Kokka style bedsheets

I went to Taste, a local Hong Kong supermarket, today and found something really interesting: they had “fake” Kokka bedsheets! The beedsheets’ fabric is copied from the Matryoshka Animals Kokka fabric, the characters are just oversized. Even Kokka is not safe from fakes anymore. Have a look at the photos I took in the supermarket:
