I know I've been MIA here on the blog, but please don't think I haven't been busy behind the scenes. I have SO many exciting things that I'm working on! Now that I'm back from summer vacation and the kids will soon be back to school/daycare, I've got a bunch of product rollouts planned for the fall.
The first products to be added to the shop will be pillow cases - 11 of them to start. Here I am surrounded by a bunch of them. Thanks again to Ellen Mesu for the wonderful portrait/product photography.
Does my facial expression say it all? Testing these fabrics and selecting which prints belonged on which fabric and in which format was INTENSE! In the beginning, I thought pillows were a bit boring, I'll be honest, but I got into them in a major way. I LOVE these!! So, I think what you see on my face is: "Wow, this is the culmination of a lot of work, but here are some products that I'm really proud of!"
The fabrics are so incredibly beautiful. There is a silk velvet which I have to restrain myself from printing EVERYTHING on, and a silk satin for the Dark Floral which is the epitome of elegance. Then there is an upholstery cotton which gives the softer flowers a toughness that I really like. In Dutch there is this word "stoer" that is used a lot. It's a combination of "tough", "rough", "rugged" and "cool" in English. "Stoer" is the word I would use to describe the pillow cases on the cottons and the linen.
Here is a sneak preview close up of some of the pillows in this initial collection, which will be added to the web shop in the next couple of weeks. I hope you like what you see!
I had so much fun with this, you can be sure there's more to come!
