I had to write this post because I have been completely obsessed with imported Japanese fabrics for the past few days. I am not even sure how I came across this great fabric with retro French kitchen ads:
I think it must have been through an Etsy search I was doing (??), but since I found this first fabric I have been hooked and exploring the world of Japanese fabrics. These fabrics are very different (at least from my perspective) from the fabrics I have seen in US fabric stores, both online and traditional brick and mortar. In my limited web search I have found a handful of specialty stores, and the fabric is pretty expensive! All the images in the post are from a very cool Etsy shop Lucky Kaeru that is well stocked in these Japanese fabrics. When I want to treat myself, I am definitely going to buy something from this shop!
The French ads fabric is from Yuwa Fabric’s Live Life fabric collection. Here are some more Yuwa fabrics that I loved.
And, here are some super cute children’s fabrics from various Japanese makers.
