FABRICS - hokkoh japan

Today I am celebrating the ingenuity of Japanese fabrics again with a look at some lovely prints spotted at Hokkoh. This Osaka based fabric company was founded in 1980 and manufactures around 600 designs a year. They exhibit at Premier Vision in both Paris and New York. Design highlights include graphic cacti and lemons, stylised trees and sharp colourful geometrics. You can find Hokkoh fabrics for sale very widely online and two UK retailers include The Fabric Fox and Celtic Fusion.
