• Fabrics come in countless colours and materials. But how are the patterns created? Where do designers get their inspiration from? The new fabric designs of premium organic brand Tula are inspired by natural materials found in the Harburg Hills, just South of Hamburg. The designs are from the new “Made by Nature” collection of fabrics, surface pattern designer Karoline Richardt (moDeern Design Studio) developed for The Creative Club, thereby reinforcing the sustainable approach own brand Tula is committed to. The nature-oriented fabric designs are in line with the company’s Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified value chain, ensuring the materials are perfectly suited for sustainable DIY and sewing projects.
The objective behind premium organic brand Tula is to take fabrics to a higher level of sustainability. “On top of the GOTS-certified design process of our fabrics, we aim to rethink our designs and to understand sustainability as a core element”, explains Laura Bangrazi, responsible for the company’s own brands at The Creative Club.
Fabric designer Karoline Richardt was asked to derive the designs for the new spring collection from nature. With this intention in mind, Karo found inspiration and materials on a walk in the Harburg Hills. She collected fruit, leaves and blossoms which formed the basis of her creative process. Next, she printed the natural materials as patterns onto paper. This way, the illustrator created artful and modern designs, which she then scanned and vectorised in high resolution.
“My absolute highlight during the design process were my dirty hands”, says designer Karo Richardt. “Normally, most of my work is digital, so I really enjoyed the analogue side of it and being creative with my hands. My favourite piece of the collection is the camomile design.”
From poppy seed capsules, corn cobs, corn silk, tansy, camomile and elder, Karo created six designs in two different colours each. Together, they form the new Tula spring collection “Made by Nature”. The outstanding feature is that, thanks to their complementing colours and patterns, the designs can be flexibly combined with each other. The perfect basis for a capsule wardrobe.
