beyond fabrics

On the way to my screen printing class at the East London Printmakers in Hackney, I stumbled upon a beautiful fabric shop in Columbia Road, Shoreditch. The entire road is lined with incredible independent shops and nothing like your average high street.

Beyond Fabrics is a treasure trove filled with amazing printed fabrics, as well as handmade accessories and vintage Japanese fabrics. The whole vibe of the shop is vintage with an edge and it is very inviting.

Set up by Brazilian designers Eduardo and Silvana, they also have a brilliant website where their unique designs can be purchased. Be sure to have a look.

lucky me

Turns out you can actually win something online. Just got an e-mail from the lovely people at timeout, informing me that I have won one of a hundred special edition prints from the contemporary artist Charles Avery.
