orla kiely fabrics

the new bag is the perfect excuse to post orla kiely prints - well we havent done it since april. just a selection of various designs - some current & some archive. one thing i havent mentioned before though is did you know that you can buy orla fabrics by the metre for making your own creations ? i didnt until recently - but here they are ( above) £35 mtr from tinsmiths.

I could look at Orla Kiely prints all day long. So gorgeous. I didn't know she had fabrics available for purchase too--how fabulous. Congrats on the bag--its great.

where would one buy Orla Kiely fabric from?

sadly orla doesnt sell fabric by the yard or metre.

but you can get an awful lot of top quality orla kiely cotton fabric by buying the duvet covers and cutting them up.

if you see fabric for sale on ebay or on etsy for example its usually been cut from bedlinen.

hope this helps : )
