westfalenstoffe





Westfalenstoffe opened their doors 75 years ago in Münster, Germany and are still there to this day. Their small prints are are based on traditional folk art designs and all of their printed fabrics are certified Öko-Tex-Standard 100. This means that the dyes used for the printing process are heavy metal and azoic free and the fabric has been treated and bleached without the use of chlorine and formaldehyde. Volksfaden has had fabrics from their organic cotton collection but I just recently added these tradtional Westfalen prints.

These prints are so pleasing. Reminds me of the traditional shwe shwe prints we have here in South Africa.
