I’m off on a slight interiors tangent this week, but I’ve just discovered the most incredible Australian online fabric store called Duck Cloth which I’m dying to tell you about....
With spring in the air (maybe I’m being overly optimistic here in Melbourne!), and dreaming of decorating and a new summer wardrobe, I’m in love with Duck Cloth’s heavenly range of natural fabrics.
Duck Cloth specialises in gorgeous printed cotton, certified organic cotton, textured linen and hemp. And for all you dressmakers out there they also sell patterns for clothing, accessories, children’s clothing, and soft toys.
So whether you’re on a mission to make cushions, curtains or clothes for your family, you’ll be inspired by the amazing range of Australian and Japanese prints, children’s fabrics, contemporary designs, florals, plus eco friendly and organic fabrics.
After having a good browse online, it certainly didn’t take long for me to create my wish-list. I’m already reaching for my credit card!
I adore the Puti de Pome range for little ones. Check out these divine cars for little boys, (I can already picture some new blinds, perfect for my 2 year olds room).
Or check out the gorgeous Japanese fairy tale inspired fabric (Atelier Akiko) for little princesses. Too cute for words!
And, I’m also thinking of how I can use the gorgeous range of Nani IRO watercolour inspired cotton prints.
I could go on and on…
Duck Cloth is the brainchild of Lisa Edwards, and her company is based in Oakleigh, Victoria.Duck Cloth was one of the stallholders at the recent Mathilda’s Market in Melbourne, but if you don’t live locally (or can’t wait until the next Market!), don’t panic they offer a fantastic online ordering service and delivery Australia-wide.
So in the true spirit of Mathilda’s Market, there’s never been a better time to channel your inner craftsperson and get sewing! Happy shopping!
Visit www.duckcloth.com.au or meet Lisa from Duck Cloth at the upcoming Mathilda’s Christmas Market at Caulfield Racecourse on Sunday 21 November.
