Happy // Print & Pattern // 2015

First of all a happy New Year to all you readers. I hope you all had an amazing christmas. We are all back in business. Already working on some new projects, some new exciting design series are in the making and we already finished some awesome things in this first week of the new year.

But January is also a time to reflect on an awesome 2014. With new clients and great finished projects and collections. The first year in which we started working for Africa, and added numerous new clients from Australia, Canada, Poland, Denmark and UK to our list of licensees. We made our annual trip to Heimtextil in Frankfurt where we met with new clients flying in from all over the world. We worked on a new collection of little babies and toddler shoes. In May there was a very exciting visit to the Empire State Building where we had a meet up with the great peeps of Shutterstock. It just kept on going.

The Spoonflower portfolio grew into a great online fabric shop with more than 700 trendy designs, quirky kids textiles and fun geometric abstracts. The design featured with this blogpost was 2014 best selling fabric. Keep sending in those finished projects. We love to see what you create!

At the end of 2014 another Little Smilemakers Studio collection was released in Veritas shops. Homewear, fabric and accessories with new retro prints inspired by an amazing overwhelming trip to India. A lot has happened! Hopefully 2015 will be as fruitful as the year we now say goodbye to.
