Virginia Johnson is a Canadian textile designer and illustrator who is probably best known for her fabulous printed scarves, tunics and totes (which, by the way, we will also be carrying come spring). Virginia paints all of her prints with watercolors and then they are silkscreened onto fabrics in India and Toronto.

And...she has recently launched a new bedding and home accessories collection! We now have in the store the gorgeous block-printed bedding in quilts and matching pillowcase sets. For this group the designer chose the process of block-printing by hand over screen-printing, because of the charming irregularities that could occur and no two items are exactly the same.

And these charming pillows are chain-stitched by hand in Kashmir using 100% wool yarn and come in a variety of patterns and colors.
