Issey Miyake x Iittala

Ittala x Issey Miyake-1-Design Crush

 

Designers love Japanese fashion house Issey Miyake, and now they’ve partnered with Finnish brand Iittala to create a range of homeware which includes pleated place mats, tote bags, and more. The collaboration – Issey Miyake x Iittala – has been in development for four years and includes thirty textile, ceramic, and glass pieces for the home. The technology developed for use in the pleating is fascinating, employing a technique that uses steam to pleat the fabric into origami-like patterns as well as a process that involves baking material in an oven. And that pastel palette? Perfect for spring.

Urban surroundings and the need for fresh air both inspire the bags and scarves that Lee Coren creates. The pieces feature handmade screen printed fabrics and original prints from scenery captured on a camera. Lee sources and produces locally and ethically, using cruelty-free, vegan friendly materials, and when sourcing leather replacements chooses high quality, italian-made, cotton-backed microfiber polyurethane. It always feels good when love something that’s doing good for the environment.

Utility Canvas

Utility Canvas-1-Design Crush

 

Couples who create together stay together, at least such is the case with Hal Grano and Jillian Kaufman and Utility Canvas. Founded in 1990, the designs and products are a combination of Jillian’s background in fashion and Hal’s appreciation for the canvas packs he used as a canoe guide. I’m drawn to all of their lines – to carry, to wear, and for the home.
