‘Hillo Blue’ is an original, quirky and fun print on a heavy weight cotton by indie Japanese fabric design house, Mannine.
On top of a blue, checked background, multiple characters by Mannine are featured, including Ms Kat, Dogulee, the Warao family, Peluche, Penguino, Masai Mama, Ms and Mr Dondolasi, Ms Schnappviecher, Mame the dog and some of their homes.
This fabric has lots of different characters and combinations to discover and work with.
This piece is a 40cm x 108cm (approx 16″ x 42.5″) remnant. It is ideal for adding fun details to a garment, making bags, cushion covers, hats, crafts and more. See the skirt I made in the last photos, and read all about it here.
With the concept of wanting people to have fun with wearing her prints, textile designer Manri Kishimoto, debuted the playful spirited Mannine brand in 2014/15 AW. She aims to design fabric that people will feel good wearing, so much so that they will want to take them on their holidays and adventures.
Mannine designs are all hand drawn by Manri Kishimoto and digitalised before printing onto her fabrics.
