stitch & connect.
i just had to give a shout out to designer satsuki shibuya of ZAKKA NOUVEAU this morning! i am so in love with these sweet fabrics and the adorable accessories made from them. zakka nouveau will be releasing a limited edition project called ‘stitch+connect’ where each day, for the next month, a special product will be made. 100% of the sales from stitch+connect (minus shipping + materials) will be donated to the buyer’s choice of charities satsuki has listed, who are contributing to aid in japan.
what’s this stitch+connect concept? each product will be uniquely different and assigned a unique limited edition number, and will include patchwork from remnant fabrics, which is the ‘stitch’ part + to drive home the idea that one can contribute somehow with the things that they have around them = the connect part! born and raised in los angeles, satsuki is also a blogger, and a self-described “nature-loving, kooky japanese-american girl who is ironically allergic to raw fish and sake”. love her work!
