FABRICS - eri shimatsuka

Staying with Kokka we have these fun Scandinavian style fabrics created by Eri Shimatsuka a designer who was born in Japan but is now based in Finland. Eri's studio brand label is called Pikuu Saari, which means 'small island' in Finnish, and the collection named Saaristo is Eri's first range for Kokka. Inspiration comes from various pie fillings (above & below) the island landscape around Helsinki, and lastly berries of the forest.

Eri is a freelance designer who has also worked with Marimeko and has a portfolio website here. Below are some examples of her illustration work...
