Echino is a wonderful imported collection of printed and solid fabrics from designer Etsuko Furuya for the Japanese fabric manufacturer Kokka.
The Echino style can be represented by layers of bright and saturated contemporary colors and quirky designs that both contain great detail and high contrast. Furuya takes inspiration from the natural world as well as from household objects and vehicles. Highly detailed nature scenes and graphic repetitions of solitary objects are staples in any season's Echino collection. However, Furuya's style is not a repetitive monotony. In fact, the Echino collection covers a great breadth of topics and is available in a variety of fabrics, from dreamy double gauze to laminates, and of course, the ever popular linen/cotton blend. There is always something in an Echino fabric to look at and love.
