Welcome to milestone new collection by Kaffe Fassett; something he has yearned to bring to you. Introducing Artisan by Kaffe Fassett for FreeSpirit, a boisterous caravan of color and exotic texture in exquisite fashion and patchwork patterns.
Artisan has been in Kaffe’s inspirational sights for quite some time. Born from a lifetime of travel and experience in the arts of knitting, needlecrafts, patchwork and textiles, Artisan speaks to a time of simplicity, boldness and high colors which likens to when he first arrived in London in the 60s.
Composed of 100% premium print cottons, hand-dyed batiks, provocative yarn-dyed woven and classic Ikat fabric, Artisan is debuting in two color-ways inspired by Kaffe’s genius for color and specific moments in his worldly travels.
According to Kaffe, the quirky and beautiful combination of a royal blue and brown scarf in an Egyptian market was the basis of Artisan Blue. Artisan Blue features six hand-dyed batiks including a lovely mottled stripe, modern circles and life-like fronds to name a few; three yarn-dyed woven Ikats with beautifully blended colors; and six colorfully designed premium cotton prints
Artisan Sunny, comes from Kaffe’s attraction to the Orient’s approach to the warm and uplifting tones of color that combine with yellow, reminding him of the vibrancy of an exotic fruit market. This color-way has seven hand-stamped batiks featuring turquoise and orange stamped chess, tonal flags in orange, brilliantly mixed lightening prints and more; brightly woven artisanal Ikats including two lovely traditional checkerboards; and nine vividly thoughtful cottons.
