Decorate with Vintage Miffy!

1When the Miffy stories first appeared in the UK in the early Sixties, colourful modernist interiors were en vogue – meaning Dick Bruna’s striking hardback books were sold in furniture design shops such as Heals and Habitat, as well as traditional book stores.

By the 1970s, the books were popular worldwide, and other Miffy products started to appear, including brightly-coloured cotton fabrics.

Jane Foster, a Devon-based textile designer and screen printer, sources vintage fabrics to create soft furnishings and accessories, and has managed to track down a batch of original Miffy fabric dating back to that time. With it, she has created a limited edition range of handmade cushion covers, cotton shopper bags and purses.

There will be just 60 of these vintage Miffy products made available – to mark Miffy’s 60th anniversary, and they include:

Cotton cushion covers – £30           Small purses – £14           Shopper bags – £34

These products will be available to order from 9am on 21st June 2015, from Jane Foster’s online shop: http://janefoster.co.uk/shop/92/

Handmade in Britain using vintage fabric, these accessories are unique, just like Miffy!
