SeemaKrishAdmiring the vibrant fabrics created by Bombay-born textile designer, Seema Krish. She creates contemporary designs that are combined with traditional textile making techniques such as hand block printing, screen printing, embroidery, shibori and weaving. Often the techniques are utilized in combination. The company’s mission statement describes her work more precisely:

“Our mission is to enhance the lives of the users and producers of our products that are simple, beautiful and luxurious; as well as environmentally and socially conscious.”

KyototoCoveting some of these products from Japanese online shop and brand, Kyototo. The name represents the blending of the traditional and contemporary centers of Japan, Kyoto and Tokyo. They did just that with the fusion of traditional production technique and contemporary embroidered products and motifs. Be sure to check out their shop as they provide international shipping. We never tire of the Japanese “less is more” approach to design.

TIPILampsWe love this TIPI lamp created by Valencia-based product designer, Javier Herrero, for Spanish online shop, Buokids. The table lamps are made from natural materials, beech wood and wool felt. The soft ecru felt is embroidered with simplified and updated graphics inspired by Native American motifs giving the lamp a handcrafted quality.
