Artisan by Kaffe Fassett for FreeSpirit

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.

To celebrate this pinnacle new fabric range from Kaffe Fassett for FreeSpirit, we have sent a few of our favorite bloggers an advanced sampling of these gorgeous fabrics.  Follow along and be inspired to bring your creative dreams to life using Artisan.

I have purchased every piece I could find, however when I watch Kaffes introduction video, I am seeing a beautiful purple/raspberry stripe, pink/grey triangles as well as blue/orange triangles. Where can I find these fabrics? No-one seems to have these three particular batiks. Will they be released at a later date? I cannot get enough of Kaffes Artisan range, I hope he builds on this first range and releases more in future.
Thank you for your help,

Looks like another winning lineup of beauty and color by Kaffee Fassett! My favorite is the huge chrysanthemums but this new line looks like it will fit right in.
