link collective

I love this time of year. Not just because the air is chill and crisp. Not even because I can legitimately start thinking about eggnog and santa, but because 'tis the season for new collections.

Oh how I love to see gorgeous new products landing in my in box.

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks, as I share my pick of the new stuff that has come my way recently...

Dots and The Hida Express

I've shared the Link Collective's beautiful Furoshiki (traditional wrapping cloth) a few times on Patternbooth, (see one of them here) and I love owner Kyoko's skill at choosing beautiful and strong designs for her scarves.

The top pattern is 'The Hida Express' by Patternbooth favourite Hannah Waldron. I love Hannah's work and this intricate pattern doesn't disappoint; the pattern explores the Hida Express train journey from Toyoma to Takayama in Japan.

The bottom pattern by Lucinda Newton Dunn explores the concept of 'folding'. Perfect inspiration for a Furoshiki design.
