Textiles: Blossom, Grampa, Gabote, Fabelab
There are no better fabrics than water-coloured linens and printed cottons for clothing and bedroom accessories to softly accompany the first months of a child’s life. Polka dots, stylised flowers, pastel colours decorate clothes, pillows, stuffed toys, door hangers, perfumed sachets and recreate the bright and enveloping atmosphere of a nursery. The label was launched in 2013 by the Belgian designer Sarah Weerts, formerly head of design of Cacharel womenswear.
Simple forms, quality materials, attention to manufacturing, and, above all, love for beautiful things are the concepts behind the recent established label of baby accessories and bed linen for children that refers back to ancestors’ craftsmanship with its name and its sartorial accuracy. Designed by mother and daughter, Valerie, an interior designer and bargain hunter in flea markets, and Delphine, fashion designer, the label is a fusion of freshness and minimalism from wall paintings to furnishings.
Fairytales atmospheres and underwater landscapes are the focus of the new line of textile accessories by Gabriela Larios, a designer and illustrator who hand made and hand painted the limited edition pieces in London. Toiletries, puppets for freshening up a room, pillows, fish-shaped purses are the main products of the collection made of natural fibre fabrics and water-based inks.
Patchwork blankets that turn into cloaks or into fairy wings. Soft cotton jersey swans that change into sleeping bags. Sheets to be used also for dressing as ghosts. The designs are by Michaela Weisskirchner-Barfod who, thanks to a background as architect and set designer, mixes the Japanese art of origami with Danish craftsmanship: “I wish to encourage creativity with my design products. There is room for small moments of wonder even in everyday life”.
