Friday Favourites: Faberwood Fabrics.

The best of Faberwood Fabrics - A roundup by The Wild Stitch

Hi Friends! 

We made it to Friday! YAY!

Just like most people with very limited incomes, I spend a lot of time dreaming about being rich. 

This Friday I wanted to share with you some of the most beautiful fabric I've seen on the internet in months. Faberwood Fabrics popped up on my Instagram feed this week and I was completely blown away by their breathtaking, curated list of unique fabrics. 

These aren't the kind of fabrics you find at your local Fabricland, these are truly impressive textiles. While I didn't find anything on their website explicitly saying that they are sourcing these products sustainably, every product seems to be made by a local artisan in traditional ways instead of mass produced in huge factories. They specialize in quality fabrics with beautiful designs. 
 

This amazing quality comes at a price, though. Most yardage costs, at least, $30 CND, if not more, plus shipping. Right now it's just not something I can afford, but if you can, I think that this would be an amazing brand to check out. These fabrics would be an amazing choice for anyone interested in slow, sustainable fashion made with quality textiles. I can't wait until I'm rich and can try some myself!

Here are my favourites from the line, what are yours?! All images are courtesy of Faberwood Fabrics.

This gorgeous cotton features the most amazing origami birds! Designed by Atelier Brunette. I'd show this off in a simple shift dress.

This quirky woodland creature printed jersey was designed by finish artist Sari Pelho, and commissioned by Majapuu. The more I look at it, the harder is is to decide if its too weird to wear, or too weird not to absolutely obsess over. I could see this making the most gorgeous tee!

Wow. This breathtaking traditional wax cotton piece was printed using traditional methods in Ghana. I've never sewn with wax cotton before, I don't think I've ever felt it before, but all I know is I need this stunning art deco print in my stash immediately.

This amazing piece was imported from a traditional Indian weaver made with homespun cotton. It's truly a marvelous piece.

Between you and me, it's a blessing that this fabric is sold out or my grocery money this month would be going to fabric. Wow. This piece was hand printed in India using traditional methods and natural dyes. 

This stunning piece is what spurred the need to create this fabric round up, I mean, just look at it. Like the other pieces from the Indian collection, its printed on amazing homespun cotton using traditional methods.

That concludes my round up of the most AMAZING fabrics from Faberwood.  I'll probably spend the rest of my daydreaming of what I could make with them if they would just hurry up and #GetInMyStash. I hope you guys have a fantastic week full of your favourite creative persuits! 

Until next time,
