Boho Fabric Trim – Ikat & Hand Printed Textiles

2014 June 5

I’m excited to introduce a new shop to you today! Boho Fabric Trim hails from Dallas, Texas where they sell the most lovely ikat and gorgeous hand printed fabric in their Etsy shop. They have just recently begun sponsoring Thread Riding Hood, so you can find their link right on the side bar!

I got to hear a bit about how this shop came about and it’s inspiring! Mili (the owner) and her mother Maya work together to curate and create the collection both locally and internationally.

“Our shop began as an idea to get mother & daughter closer together — a creative journey where my mother and I could connect and deepen our bond through something creative, productive and have memories that would last more than a lifetime. Hopefully, this will be our legacy.”  ~ Mili

The more I find out about the shop, the more I know these ladies are not just selling fabric. They are hand crafting textiles as fabric artists. The thought of the time spent handloom weaving, block printing and hand screen printing. Goodness, they even do things I have to look up in Wikipedia - kantha, kalamkari, pintaks (which I can’t even find!). They add beading and more!

When Mili contacted me a few months ago I immediately fell in love with so many of her fabrics! The photos in this post were so hard to choose. The style and the ikat goodness are very much what I am looking for right now. They are perfect for throw pillows, re-upholstering that favorite chair that you’ve had for years, or use it to finish off your windows with the most perfect curtains! Maybe even a Camber Dress or Top for yourself?

Mili has let me know that the Boho Fabric Trimshop is offering special introductory discounts – just for you. You’ve always wanted to sew with a piece of hand crafted art – now you can! (Honestly, even if it is a special birthday gift to yourself.) If not for pillows or curtains, these can be stretched onto frames and used as artwork for your home. That would look amazing!

Head on over to Boho Fabric Trim and check out what she has in stock. You will not be disappointed! I’ll let Mili have the last word: “My ‘Kufri Life’ can be described as having these elements in my life – creativity, connecting with family and making new friends and exploring this great big world… I have always had a serious case of the wanderlust! It’s been amazing connecting with my mother through this new adventure… I can’t wait to see where we land next!
