What is it about Melbourne that produces all these great textile designers? Caitlin Klooger from Pippijoe is one of our best-known fabric designers and also creates beautiful accessories and home furnishings with her own fabric. All designs are screenprinted using environmentally friendly inks on natural fibres (100% hemp, hemp/cotton mix or a linen/cotton blend).
Pippijoe fabrics and soft furnishings are so hot - you'll find them in all the great Australian interior magazines (most recently in the November 2008 issues of Real Living and Home Beautiful) and a huge array of design blogs (Shannon Fricke, Decor8, Apartment Therapy!).
You can find all the latest Pippijoe products on Caitlin's online diary (including these amazing baskets). And you can buy them at the Pippijoe online shop, the Pippijoe Etsy shop, and a range of great stockists (listed here).
