How is our shop working?

Some of you asked how is this shop working.

Well, I have some answers for you right now: my name is Catalina and I am a fabric addict and fabric hunter. I walk in fabric shops from countries I visit and choose the nicest and highest quality fabrics. I mostly work with cotton and linen fabrics, sometimes with mixed fibers (cotton+linen, cotton+polyester, cotton+elasthane).

I now understand the fever my granmother had everytime we got her new materials to work. She was inlove with fabrics just like I am now.

I preffer heavier weight or medium weight fabrics for my products because I want them to pass the time test. My favorite fabric makers are Vallila, Finlayson, Eurokangas, sometimes Marimekko (from Finland), Arvidssons Textil, Kinnamark, Svanefors (from Sweden), Prestigious Textiles (from UK). For clothing I am still testing materials but I can say that some of the nicest in Finland are Paapii Design and Nuppu Print Company.

So, while hunting fabrics on internet and shops wherever I go, I am buying small amounts (1-5 m) and sew different items out of them. Sometimes those fabrics can still be found in shops, sometimes they are discontinued, therefore I will always let know about this fact. Or, if my favorite shop does not have something in stock, i will search and buy from another one. This, however takes time so the time to receive and create an item may vary from 2-10 days.

Have a look at this fabrics in our stock right now. Maybe you like something out of it:
