Designs for Cloud9 Fabrics


I'm excited to report that I have a fabric collection coming out with Cloud9 Fabrics this fall! And get this: it will be printed on barkcloth. So retro. So cool. If you're not sure what that is, read this TrueUp post or go to a thrift store, locate some tropical print curtains from the 50s, and feel them. They're probably barkcloth. You can use it for upholstery, curtains, pillows, bags, and all the usual home dec projects. And shoes.

Better start combing vintage stores and Craigslist right now, looking for the perfect Danish teak chair you can reupholster. If you're in Cincinnati, you and I may end up in a fist fight over them. Fair warning.

Recently I had the privilege of working with Cloud9 on their new identity, which involved a redesign of their existing logo and the addition of a mark for Cloud9 Collective, their new designer label for patterns created by the hive of artists and designers they admire.







To get your geometric fabric fix in the meantime, grab a bit of my Arrow print from The Needle Shop. It would make a sweet messenger bag or fun accent chair.

Congratulations! I love the logo and materials you did for them and I can't wait to see your new collection. So cool that it's on barkcloth (and thanks for the informational links--I always wondered what made barkcloth barkcloth, but never looked it up).

Yay! Can't wait to sew with even more new fabrics! Barkcloth is new to me, so I'm looking forward to giving it a try! Meanwhile, I'm keeping busy with Arrow......

I have a serving platter that was my grandmothers from the 60s(?) with such a similar pattern... I'm going to have to make placemats and ask Don Draper to dinner!!

Umm, I actually have Danish teak mid-century chairs that need to be reupholstered. Am I a walking parody of myself? Also, where do I sign up? I think I need that fabric!

Jessica Jones said...

Awesome. I'll let you know when it's ready, or follow Cloud9!
