Go World


[World pillows by Handmade Expressions.]

On the team USA front, I've been sharing favorite Peter Fasano fabrics over at tumblr (take a peek inside the Berkshire-based studio here) along with Liberty's new UK-manufactured furnishing fabrics. And, also right in-step with Olympic spirit, check out the batik-printed World pillow covers available on sale at The Textile Museum shop. More on batik here, here and here.

ADORE Peter Fasano - I visited his studio last year - he and his wife Elizabeth have such a great aesthetic at home and at work!!

What a great idea to 'globalise' batik in this way. And you could go further and have architectural designs in batik, or chinoiserie designs in batik ... the world is your batik (Batik it! Batik it! - as Diana Vreeland might have said) :)

Jacqueline -- I'm watching, too. Monday is cross country :)

Jennifer, Stacy -- nice to hear from fellow Fasano fans.

Emile -- Batik it! That's perfect. Your chinoiserie idea also calls to mind Thomas Paul's designs.
