Shepherds Purse is thought of as a weed in both England and Japan, but this humble plant was nonetheless the inspiration for this pattern. The soft blues in the background with the floral pattern make very versatile and bright cushions.
The Sakata workshop is always bustling with activity. The Sakatas are constantly trying new ideas and patterns, whether it is opening a boutique in New York or collaborating with designers.
They are a big supplier of clothing, but are happy for us to explore their storeroom for any patterns we can find. They are a great combination of producer and entrepreneur - and are always fun to deal with.
