Fab Fabrics: New Designs from Swanky Swell

We’ve written about the lovely designs from Swanky Swell before, so of course we were delighted when the Bay Area designer introduced some beautiful new fabrics to her line.

Designer Nina has an interior design background and has always been drawn to textiles. She’s inspired by its ability to combine graphics and textures and found an outlet for capturing the beauty of the everyday through textile design.

Nina says that nature is her biggest inspiration, which is why it’s really important to her that she produce a sustainable product:

All of my design has natural element in it. This newest collection mixes my love of travel and nature. You will see some ornate design blended with a touch of whimsical floral prints.

My previous collection is screenprinted by hand using non toxic water-based ink on 100% cotton here in San Francisco. Recently, I introduced a new organic prints collection using certified organic cotton/hemp blend. I’m a believer that eco-friendly material will promote a healthy lifestyle and its environment.

You can check out Swanky Swell’s new organic line over in her Etsy shop!
