Retro fabric in Japanese design

So remember the fabrics that I showed a couple of weeks ago - or maybe it was months ago -I can't remember, showing motifs of pigs with cobweb and geckos? Anyhoot, so I have more fabric of the same wonderful Japanese designer that will soon turn into the coolest retro pillows. The latest designs come with prints of cars and scooters. The fabrics combine beautifully. However I suggest you combine these retro prints with the more stylish kimono pillows coming early spring which I think would add more of a surprise element to your bed or sofa.
Stay tuned for pics of the finished pillow covers. Cheers!

Eye candy from down below

Ohh I just love these pillows! It's eye candy all the way from Australia. The colors, the patterns, the fact that they are hand printed...yapp it's official I LOVE THEM! Wish I could just keep all my pillows or just make them all work together un our house, but one has to choose and these are at the top of my list at the moment. Yummy!

Measures: 40x40 cm

New pillows with vintage prints

The duo behind these pillows have created a wide range of inspiring designs. The motifs of the pillows are truly original, regularly renewed and inspired by old documents or drawn from the creators own world. Particular care is taken to match the back to the front; the fabrics used for the back varying from one cover to another - they are truly unique! In the same spirit as PilLove's design - each cover is numbered and the number of copies are limited. Art is simply not mass made! LOVE IT OR DIE! YUUUUMMY!

Rikkemai watch out here comes PilLove!

I don't know if you've heard or seen Rikkemai's shawls...they are gorgeous but according to me over priced. So when I came across these babies I just feel in love instantly and once again decided I had to share them with everyone else.
The scarves/shawls are made of hemp or cotton fabric that are hand embroidered with typical Hmong/Miao cross stitches. The shawls are sewn out of vintage fabric collected from Thailands Hmong Hill Tribes in northern Thailand. If you love Rikkemai shawls but like me can't afford them these are a wonderful alternative as you don't pay for the brand just the artestry.

I haven't decided which to choose they are all so fabulouse!
