Online store Volksfaden (literally translated as the ‘people’s threads’) was borne from a love of textiles, fabrics, print and pattern. The website itself is also a testament to good design, with the application of fabric designs to vintage photos in particular making for enjoyable viewing. Volksfaden is also an incubator for great designers, nurturing a creative community and making contemporary fabrics more accessible. [also check out the new Lost At E Minor online store]
