Fabrilicious

Repeat FabricI was surprised a couple of weeks ago to read on Formspring that Grace Bonney {design*sponge} is wondering where all the great new fabric designs are, comparing textiles to the recent boom of wallpaper. I guess she would be in the know as far as the design world goes, so maybe the fabric I have been discovering a lot of lately are actually old, but new to me? Anywhoo, I thought I would render a shortlist here of some textile designers I am a fan of:

And some great online shops to find get such fabric:

I personally love reading True Up – Kim can keep us all informed of all things fabric.  There are also several services, including Spoonflower that will allow you to upload your own designs for print on fabric, which is quite exciting. There are many designs from experienced Spoonflowers for sale as well, I am amassing a list of favorites over there as well. At any rate, I think there are a lot of really great textiles out there to be had and wanted to share my sources. At the end of the day, my all time favorite fabric will always be vintage feedsacks!
