great patterns from keibunsha, via dear ada.

does anyone know the artist?
update: patterns seem to be by designer Lida Kasa Ten, although it’s hard to find info online!

i was very happy to contribute to the new fog linen book, around fog linen. yumiko sent me a package of beautiful products that i photographed in my home– as did designers maria vettese, jen causey, lotta jansdotter, and several more. i love the fog linen aesthetic so much (the new spring catalog is now available). i especially loved the hand drawn gift certificate that yumiko included when she sent me the books.connecting with like-minded creative people around the world like this has been the best part of having a design blog.

i’ve been meaning to post for a while about textile designer lucienne day, who passing away at the end of january at age 93. i remember the first time i saw her work, i felt the wind knocked out of me in a good way. she was so prolific, and i’ve turned to this book of her work so many times when i need a burst of energy for designing. thank you for being so inspiring, lucienne.
