Eyes of the World was one of the three original designs we printed back in 2008. Originally we printed it in shades of green. Years later we decided to reprint it in a new colorway. After polling our facebook fans and talking with out current customers we decided to go with this fresh yellow and grey version. Originally the yellow was a lighter lemony color but our distributor in the EU (Pure Fabricz) suggested a more mustard shade. I LOVE co-creating and am so grateful for Monique's suggestion.
I am always open to ideas and requests. I can't always deliver on them, but I do my best to make decisions collectively and with YOU in mind.
The title "Eyes of the World" is another Grateful Dead tune and here's a few of the lyrics to ponder:
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the mornin' brings
But the heart has its seasons, its evenin's and songs of its own
The latest edition to the Harmony Art organic fabric line is Franklin's Tower. This design was inspired by one lonely leaf -- actually it was this very leaf (pictured above). Almost all of my designs start from a walk in nature. I LOVE to hike and being around the natural world somehow grounds and inspires me.
So a sharpie pen and many months later Franklin's Tower was created (see below for grey on natural 300tc organic sateen version).
You may be asking, why that title? Well, just as my designs are typically inspired by nature, my titles are typically inspired by music. Franklin's Tower is a song by the Grateful Dead. One of my favorite lines in the song is, "when you get confused, listen to the music play." The last 2+ years of my life have been -- in a word -- CONFUSING. Like nature grounds me, music soothes my soul. I am SOOOO very grateful for both! Can you imagine life without music or nature?! Yikes!
This version (below) of Franklin's Tower on organic canvas in Black and White was a direct result of a request from our customers and friends at All Natural Dog. They wanted a heavier fabric and a black and white design. Together we decided on this.
We love helping our customers find the organic fabrics they need and sometimes if they don't exist, we work together to MAKE IT HAPPEN. That's how this fabric came to life. For me, collaborating is the most enjoyable way to work.
So if you can't find what you need, please don't hesitate to contact me and we'll put our heads together and see what we can do! Often I have to direct you to others but sometimes we can collaborate to create your vision!
As my dad would say, "The answer is no if you don't ask!". Thanks for those wise words, Pops. Even though your days on this planet have ended, your influence and sense of 'right' encourage me to live up to your high standards.
