As winter begins to loosen its grasp, hints of Spring can be seen by the observant. Sometimes the hints are obscured by late winter snowfall. In moments when it seems that winter may quite possibly never let go of its hold on us, we like to turn toward the visually stimulating textiles hitting the market to inspire hope of better things to come (like better weather). To that end, here are a few of our favorite current fabrics on the market.
Brooklyn Mojo by Pantera Saint-Montaigne
Brooklyn Mojo is a small artisan textile business located in New York City. Each of Pantera’s original fabric designs is screen printed by hand in her home studio. The designs are eclectic and dramatic. We love the movement of Pantera’s prints and the eye-catching colors she chooses to use in her designs. Because of their original nature, available patterns at any given time will vary. All quilting weight fabrics are printed with water based inks on Kona Cotton.
In addition to selling quilting cotton weight fabric panels, Pantera also sells hand printed kitchen towels, canvas bags, and Swedish sponge cloths. You can learn more about Brooklyn Mojo on Instagram @brooklynmmojo and online at www.brooklynmojo.com.
Under One Sky by Pip and Lo for Cloud 9
If you’re looking for the perfect bag or throw pillow fabric, look no further.Under One Sky is a fabric line of 100% certified organic cotton canvas. The moody jewel tones of this sophisticated jungle were inspired by the diverse environments on our planets.
Wabi Sabi by Marcia Derse for Windham Fabrics
Wabi Sabi is a single fabric print that pairs perfectly with Derse’s previous printed, but still current, batik collectionHere There from Anthology Fabrics (a division of Windham). We love the improv vibe of this fabric print.
