Etsy Love: Swanky Swell

Sometimes I don't know where each week goes, but it's Saturday again.....and my searches for an Etsy shop to feature today led me to Swanky Swell, maker of several beautiful and original organic cotton patterned fabrics. San Fransisco-based Interior Designer Nina Jizhar (who, according to her Etsy profile, shares my son's birthday of May 12th so she must be extra awesome!) designs her own patterns and prints them on an upholstery-weight organic cotton/hemp blend. Eco-cred and originality all in one!! Her designs all share a fun retro feel whether executed in a neutral monochromatic color or in a vibrant range of hues. Most are offered at a reasonable $48/yard.
