Step inside the studios of today's modern fabric design stars from around the world. From the bold florals of Kaffe Fassett to the subtle patterning of Naomi Ito to the retro style of design collective Ruby Star Society, Modern Fabric features a sophisticated, eclectic group of designers working in an exciting variety of techniques.

Engaging essays explore each designer's life in textiles: education, design beginnings, creative process, dreams, and how they run their businesses. Hundreds of color photographs offer endless inspiration, showing studio spaces, process, textile samples, and products made from the gorgeous fabrics featured in the book. Modern Fabric is an ideal resource for sewers, quilters, crafters, designers, and all those who aspire to a fun, color-filled, modern lifestyle.
