I have to share something with you– I kind of have an obsession with fabric.
Today, I would like to introduce you to one of my absolute favorite fabric companies- Monaluna.
Monaluna is a textile and surface design company producing fresh, modern prints and organic cotton fabric. They are headquartered in a 100 year old farmhouse in California. Monaluna has been around for a little over a year now. However, Jennifer Moore, the designer behind Monaluna, is no stranger to textile design. She began licensing her artwork for fabric in 2008. Jennifer designed several very successful collections for Robert Kaufman. In 2010, Jennifer designed that it was time to venture out on her own, and she began releasing her own line of beautiful organic cotton prints.
Monaluna has quickly became a favorite to me for several reasons. First of all, each and every one of the fabric designs are stunning. When I tell you that I would like yardage of each beautiful collection, I sincerely mean that. I also really appreciate that all of the fabrics are organic. Monaluna fabric is made in India from 100% organic cotton and printed with AZO-free dyes. The fabric is made from medium-weight poplin weave, and is ideal for quilting, apparel and baby and kids’ items as well as home accessories.
Jennifer recently sent me several pieces from her upcoming collection Taali. This collection isn’t on sale at her website just yet, but trust me– you will definitely want to keep your eyes open for it!
I received a half-yard bundle, filled with some of the most stunning and beautiful pieces of fabric I have ever seen. I knew immediately what this fabric was destined to be– clothing for my daughter. I decided to pair some of the lovely prints with other solids that I had on hand. I did this to both stretch my fabric and highlight the designs.
I chose a basic jumper-style dress to make (it is the Paper Doll Dress from Lil Blue Boo, if you’re wondering). This is a pattern that I have used many times in the past, and I knew that it would be ideal for fabrics from Monaluna.
The fabric was a dream to sew with. It is soft, and also a bit wider than the traditional 44″ cottons you find at many craft stores. This was really, really nice, and allowed me to have a lot less waste and leftover fabric.
After seeing firsthand how absolutely wonderful the fabrics from Monaluna are, I am definitely going to have to order some more. Here is a sneak peek at Jennifer’s other collections, currently for sale on the Monaluna website.
Fabrics from Monalua would be the perfect gift for the fabric lover in your life– even if that fabric lover is yourself! The fabric is sold by the yard and also in bundles of charm squares, fat quarters, and half-yards.
I also have a very special giveaway to share with you. One lucky reader is going to win a fat quarter bundle of fabric from the all-new Taali collection from Monaluna~
