NEW IN • Nani IRO Fabrics
To kick start 2016 we've just added some beautiful new fabrics by Japanese designer Naomi Ito for Kokka Fabrics.
We're big fans of Naomi's here at The Draper's Daughter, and love the abstract painterly quality to her work; a garment in any of the Nani Iro fabrics is sure to make you stand out from the crowd.
This new collection includes three designs in 100% cotton double gauze. This lovely lightweight fabric is made from two layers of fine fabric held together at regular intervals in a grid of tiny stitches so small they're almost invisible. This breathable fabric is cool in the summer and warm in winter.
The image above shows, from left to right, Birdseye News, Joy Flower Respect, Sazanami Pocho Hoko, this design was made using a Japanese "salt-shrinking' process called Enshuku which creates a lovely crinkled effect, and lastly we have Jewel Song Pocho Asagiri.
Finally, we've Spectacle in the colourway Good Morning, shown above, which is printed on a lightweight cotton/linen canvas.
We're sure you'll agree that these fabrics are all perfect for getting your Summer wardrobe under way, whichever fabric you decide on, happy sewing!
