Japanese Fabrics – Decolello by Yuka Saji

September 11, 2012

Have you heard of Decole? Well, truthfully, I hadn’t. Till I stumbled upon this sale item, and it was so cute I had to buy it. The discounted price helped too of course. 🙂

It was not till I searched for more information before I realized that Decole is actually a company that owns many “brands”. If you visit their website you may recognize some of them before. One of my favourites is Otogicco.

But I digress. So back to the designs by Yuka Saji, the brand is called Decolello. And her designs are full of cute little smiley faces 🙂 It’s bad for me because I cannot resist cute fabrics! I always end up with too many. And they are usually thick linen/cotton mix which is great for making bags and accessories but not for clothes or dresses.

These two designs seem to be from the latest collection. How cute is the cactus! One more for the wish list. Plus all the new brands and objects of desire I discovered on the decole website. I better write them down for the next trip!

      Hi sy! Yup I’ve seen the Otogicco teapot+cup set at NBC bookstore (that’s the one near Art Friend). Nippon-ya at the basement of Ion Orchard carried them for a while too. But I decided not to fork out $50 bucks for something ornamental since I hardly ever drink tea. Took a long time standing around it before deciding I didn’t need it. 🙂 But there are a couple of other cool stuff from the site. Especially the Papeterie Poulain series for vintage looking orgainzers (for my sewing stuff). But those will be real hard to carry back home. 🙁

    oh yeah but a friend told me about cat socrates (a shop based in bras basah complex) which sells similar stuff to the papeterie poulain series I think. Haven’t had the chance to check in out cos I’m still based in the US but the things look good!
