The patterns are spontaneous and playful, drawing inspiration from natural life - ie. flowers, rain, snow - and drawings by Ms. Ito herself.
The cotton fabrics are unbelievably soft and fluid, but have quite a bit of body from the two layers of gauze. its very versitile, and would be wonderful as a fashion fabric and for lightweight home decor use.
Nani Iro linen is beautiful. Starting with crisp midweight linen, it is then screenprinted with sketches and watercolors by the designer for a fabric that is asthetically very modern, yet feels organic. it would be best used in simple pieces that would showcase the beauty of the fabric itself.
We are offering Nani Iro both by the yard and by fat quarter (a squarish 1/4 yard), so that its easier to get the right size for your project. Also because we understand that it is impossible to transmit the unique texture of these fabrics over the internet, if you email me I will send you a small sample via snail mail.
