Nobu Fujiyama Art Collection Grows

Oh my! How time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve been operating out of the consolidated office/warehouse in Redmond for two months now and I’ve been to and fro to my home base in Honolulu several times. Hmmm, am I having fun yet?

The answer is a resounding—yes! Although some days have their challenges—for instance, the artwork that was once neatly organized in art drawers is now starring as the stack in the corner. Oh, and all those file folders, that used to live in the many file cabinets we sold in Honolulu, they were temporarily homeless. It’s not like moving down the street or even the next zip code. We’re talking nearly 3,000 miles of land and water!

But, just like the sunshine in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, the light of a well organized, place for everything office is breaking through. The staff, transplanted and native, are humming and making me proud. We've been busy doing what we do.

You’ll be excited to hear we’ve got a new 12 design program that’ll start rolling into your local stores before you know it. The Textile Pearls of Japan (you’re seeing a preview here!) will be available come November. Stores are putting their orders in now.

Two designs will be released once a month for six consecutive months and each design will be available in two rich Kona Bay colorways. Do I have you oohing and aahing yet? Well, let me point out that these stunning designs are additions to the Nobu Fujiyama art collection. Ah, yes, I’m hearing it now! In unison on three this time—1, 2, 3…

You’ll find your favorite Asian motifs incorporated into breathtaking designs that will add a dramatic focal point for your next project. The intricate, story rich art in previous Nobu designs is back once again.

I also wanted to mention the survey we have in the current issue (#16) of Asian Fabric magazine. They keep coming in every day. Have we received yours? Not only do you have a chance to be entered into a drawing for free fabric (I know those two words make your heart go pitter patter) but you help me know what you’d like to see in the future.

I’ve missed you! I have more news but I’ve taken up enough of your time today so I’ll visit with you next week. I’m back in the Redmond office and looking forward to exploring more of the Pacific Northwest this weekend.
