I had so many people contact me about ordering "Loteria" fabric, that I decided to pull together an order to get a reprint done, I contacted Alexander Henry and found out that I needed to have an order of 2000 yds to place a reprint order. Unfortunately by the time that I had collected the orders, they could not reprint it. About a year ago, I arranged a meeting with the owner of Alexander Henry. I had an order of over 2500 yds for their famous "Loteria" print that has been out of print since 2008. I came up with an idea that would allow my customers to have the "Loteria" fabric but with a twist. The owner was very interested.
Yesterday I met with the owner again. I heard that my idea was put into action and they were going to print! Yaay!. He brought me over to a small room and I saw it. It's beautiful, my eyes teared up. My idea of Loteria with Day of the Dead on fabric. After I got to see the proofs of the fabric, I met & chatted with Nicole, one of the awesome fabric designers at AH. She is really nice and fun to talk to. I will be interviewing her about this fabric and posting it on my blog in September.
The fabric will be in ready to ship in September. They will be sending me the color proof cards in about 2-3 weeks. As soon as I get them, I will post the pictures and taking preorders for these awesome fabrics. There will be 4 colorways and there are coordinates that go with the fabric too!
