Together with Andover Fabrics, MNM Licensing is proud to announce the launch of Story Lines, a 24-piece collection of hand blocked cotton fabric developed for the home sewing market. Story Lines marks the seventh collaboration between MNM Licensing and Andover Fabrics. For this group, Andover designer Kathy Hall was drawn to Central and West African textiles at the Museum of International Folk Art, specifically: handwoven Kuba cloth, Bogolanfini, or mud dyed cloth and Adire, or indigo wax resist dyed cloth.
The techniques employed to create the pattern and texture of the original textiles reflect both the unique design language of the makers and the materials available to them. The patterns that emerge narrate the story of a given country, and the artist's world view. Finding inspiration in the diversity of material and breadth of pattern, Andover developed this joyful and graphically compelling collection.
Andover is a design studio and fabric converter, specializing in printing of cotton fabrics for quilting applications and home sewing. Distributed in throughout the US and in UK under the Makower brand. To see the collection visit: Andover Fabrics
