One of my favourite textile designers is Hamilton-based Jenna Rose. Her simple ‘life’ inspired designs make me happy. Jenna takes ordinary everyday elements like bicycles, houses and pine cones and turns them into beautiful patterns printed on fabric. Developed from hand-drawn sketches, her designs are then screenprinted with non-toxic pigments. She sells a whole selection of products made from these fabrics including pillows, tea towels, blankets and storage bins.
This pillow would be perfect for a kids room.
Stay cosy with this super-soft blanket made with organic cotton flannel.
This is one of my favourite patterns — you’ll recognize it from the pillow Focus piece in our April 2010 issue. At 12” high by 8” in diameter, these storage bags are the great for storing toys, crafts or magazines, as shown.
And finally, a little sneak peek of what’s to come from the Jenna Rose fall/winter collection:
Moose, bears and deer — oh my! These Canadiana-themed tea towels would make a fantastic hostess gift this fall.
Pine cones galore — my laundry would be lucky to live in such a cute storage bin!
