chicadecanela collection#4 School of Zakka

The new chicadecanela collection is inspired by one of my latests obsessions that you readers of my blog should know about: Zakka Style. It has been an inexhaustible source of inspiration and awe for me for the last year or so and it still is. This collection is a celebration of a 'natural' way of designing, of putting together a collection in the most handcrafted, handmade way possible, of being true to materials and shapes. Everything should be calm and sensible just like the pictures in zakka books tell us.
I have tried to keep my most original whilst moulding to the parameters that zakka style suggest: natural fabrics, as natural and unadulterated as possible; the entire collection is based in 100% linen fabrics gently bleached to achieve the checkered pattern. Natural notions: mother-of-pearl buttons, rope buttons, leather, antique brass pieces, écru lace.Slight use of color: just a hint of red to acentuate here and there. And handcrafted detail, like embroideries, crochet,...
If you let me i´d like to introduce pieces from my collection here in my blog. That way i could talk about then a little, how they were made, materials...We will start tomorrow with that, but before...

Look at the new chicadecanela handtags! I´m so happy with then i just can´t hide it :D

They are so round and thick and cute that i could eat then! I think they are lovely even on their own, they certainly have a presence.

This were printed to acompany the new collection, so they are kind of limited edition. You might guess that cherries are the new birdies for me. At least as long as this long winter in front of us lasts.

And they look gorgeous hanging from the bags and accessories from the collection.

What is Aki saying about chicadecanela? I hope it´s something good!

I can't read everything but this is the basic gist of what Aki has said:
This cute doll's name is Cecile. It came from Spain. I received it from an artist I've been communicating with called Lucia (Niina: omg I can;t remeber your name how embarressing >_<). I was surprised that someone from Spain could see my little space on the internet. (I'm not so sure about the next sentence - something about what the internet is doing to the world...and then the rest is hard to read but says things about cute emotions and the fun of crafting is all around the world)

Hehe I'm a terrible translator!

Woops and I was supposed to say I am so so so in love with your name bag! It is my dream come to life! But I am probbaly too poor to afford it ;_; And those tags are so lovely! Very simple idea but it just goes straight to your heart :D

I also love the catalogue. The approach is so homely and familiar. It makes me think of freshly baked bread, laughing innocent children and simple shift dresses...oh and lattes!

Hello cutie! Thanks so much for the translation! I didn´t expect anyone to be able to translate it. This was so sweet of you, you totally made my day (^.^)
And thanks for the compliments about my collection, i love how you describe it: freshly baked bread, lattes,...spot on! The 'Name' bag is my favorite too, i´m glad that you like it so much :)

(>.<) Cheers!
