Introducing: Westfalenstoffe

First of all, I would like to thank ALL of you for your kind and heartfelt comments to my previous post. I have forwarded them to my dad. I know he will take great comfort in them. Thank you for your support. I'm so glad I'm part of this great blogging community!
I will be doing a series of posts highlighting European textile companies. Maybe it's fitting that I start off with a famous German textile company: Westfalenstoffe AG. I happen to live only about an hour's drive away from their headquarters and outlet store! This company was founded 75 years ago by textile artist Hanne-Nuete Kaemmerer, born 1903, famous for her intricate and, at the time, quite innovative cross-stitch designs. Many of her early textile designs have been reproduced, and are popularly used to decorate kitchens, given them a typical country house feel. Perhaps most notable is that these fabrics are made from 100% natural cotton, and do not contain formaldehyde or synthetic resin. All the colours are non-toxic and therefore suitable for children's clothes and bed linens. Westfalenstoffe produce a wide range of checks (Vichy), stripes and floral prints - which can easily be mixed and matched. They also produce a variety of very distinctive cuddly dolls!

  1. Very cute dolls and certainly lovely fabrics!

  2. Love the fabrics. We must have the same taste. I am ordering myself a make-up bag tonight. I haven't traveled as much in the past year as I usually do because of Coco's illness, but I have a couple short getaways coming up and I will have a beautiful Duni bag. I will even do a post on it!
    Hope all is well!
