Yesterday I visited Mokum to view their fabric collections and I quickly fell in love with their designs which, as announced only recently, will also feature in the upcoming movie The Great Gatsby!
What I found most inspiring was being given a peek into the creative process and the work that goes behind creating a design from the initial concept through to the final product and the workmanship involved in ensuring the products are suitable for Australia and New Zealand. The summer sun can bleach fabrics and turn silk into dust so careful consideration is required for our climate.
Also displayed were Mokum's indoor/outdoor range of fabrics (example above) which are made of recycled plastic bottles but feel almost as soft as cotton. Mokum is also working with another company on a new range of indoor/outdoor fabrics that are made from the tape of old cassettes (remember those??) and are sheer and soft and don't look or feel like plastic. Clever idea, don't you think?
