Volksfaden






I continue to be really excited by cool textile design. I love these from German company Volksfaden. Linda Gaylord, the owner, imports these fabrics from Japan and the US from such innovative designers as Amy Butler and Jennifer Paganelli. She has great taste and many of the fabrics are printed on a linen / cotton blend that give them a stiffer and chunkier texture, which I like. As I imagine beginning my own textile venture, I think these are really an inspiration.

One place I've found that has great textile design is Svenskt Tenn.

I'm a big fan of their trays (which use their textiles) -- beautiful, durable, functional -- but you can also get pillows and furniture in their fabrics.

Completely agree . Volksfaden has some of my favorite textiles out there. I love their little collages they use on the site too.

Oh yes, I'm a big fan of the Svenskt Tenn! Thanks for the reminder. They have a beautiful line. I went to their store in Stockholm a few years ago and really loved their mix of vintage bold patterns. Do you know where to get the trays? I've seen them and would love to have one.

The store is great -- not just textiles but furniture as well. I think you can order trays online from the Svenskt Tenn site but that is pretty pricey. Occasionally they're on eBay -- and since people in the US don't generally know the name you can get a good deal.
