Tomoko from Scion: versatile upholstery fabrics inspired by the clean lines and simplicity of Japanese design.
Building on the success of Spirit Weaves, Scion launches a new collection, Tomoko, which means ‘wisdom’ in Japanese. A highly useable collection of small-scale upholstery weaves, Tomoko draws its inspiration from the simple shapes and clean lines embodied in Japanese design.
According to Scion designer, Hannah Bowen, “Tomoko focuses on the principles of asymmetry and celebrates the irregularity of small marks and interconnected geometrics. Its motifs incorporate lines of varying lengths, cleverly balanced and overlapped.”
Comprising 4 woven designs over a number of delicious colourways, the collection contains 30 fabrics: versatile and durable, they are suitable for general domestic upholstery and, in the case of Makoto, contract upholstery.
HIKARI: Graffiti-like, short, vertical ‘scratches’.
MAKOTO: Mark-making vertical lines contained within horizontal lines.
MIYU: Triangles balanced to form diamond motifs.
RIKO: A semi-plain with interest added by its white dots.
The colour palette encompasses calm shades of paper, linen, mink, hessian, blush, fossil, slate, parchment, dove and seaglass, as well as stronger tones such as midnight, citrus, zebra, tortoiseshell, chocolate, juniper, paprika, sunflower, steel, indigo and onyx.
Tomoko will be launched at the end of August via a network of stockists both nationally and internationally.
