MirrorMirror {new} Pretty Things!

Paola sent along updates for her pretty web shop, MirrorMirror that I have to share. I never tire of ceramics and tea towels, and it seems Paola doesn’t either. Just look at these darling things just added to her shop.


Paola has exquisite taste so it’s no surprise that she has additional works, like these ceramic mobiles, from Swedish talent Karin Eriksson. Karin is really growing as a ceramicist, it’s exciting to watch her progress and venture into other avenues with her talent. She’s really amazing and in Sweden, she’s quite the it girl, I noticed her wares around Stockholm and in magazines there. And thanks to the internet, Karin has expanded into all parts of the world selling her products at stores all over, as well as web shops. This is quite an example of the power of the internet. It doesn’t matter where you live these days, if you have talent and put it out there, people will respond. Isn’t this fact so encouraging?

Thank you Paola for the tip!

Bantie {Sweden}

Bantie is Ulrika Gyllstad and Wilhelmina Wiese, Stockholm-based textile designers with a collection of patterns that definitely scream I am Scandinavian, don’t you think?

The more popular prints that I noticed around the city are Kokeshi, Paradis, Bubbel and Korall, especially Paradis with the birds and Korall with the organic circles resembling something from the sea.


Click here to locate their textiles, or if you own a shop and would like to offer Bantie to your customers, send them an email to info AT bantie.se. You can also purchase their fabric by the meter.

Clare Nicolson

There’s nothing like a little Monday morning print and pattern indulgence and I always love to see what textile designer Clare Nicolson is up to so let’s enjoy her for a moment, shall we?


Clare is so super talented with her cute colorful designs, it’s fun to see what’s she’s cooking up. Her cushions are as sweet as ever and her tea towels are the best.


Overall, I’m impressed with her designs and think her work is getting stronger all the time. Go Clare, Go!

Metremade

I’m always watching Metremade on etsy to see what this Australian textile designer will have next. Ooooh look at these two patterns…


Currently, she’s working with black and green and I love the results. Both patterns are available in either two colorways, green/white or black/white and I think they’re very special – so fresh. I’d love to see these on a bench or chair, especially a chair like this one.
