Good news! Baenderei Kafka openend their online shop (in German language)
It will take some time until the whole, hughe range of ribbons will be online, but the shop will be updated successively
Only 2 days left until we are opening our doors for the first Siegburger KofferKompott, kind of a trunk show
with 23 exhibitors. I´m so excited and I look forward to all the creative heads joining us.
If you are in the area, we´d be happy to meet you

Hi there, I hope you spent a nice 1.Advent weekend.
My little expo at Kafka Baenderei was very cozy. It was not so crowded like last time
and there was more time for chatting with people.
Now the next event is already right around the corner. Super busy days ahead
I´m glad to read that the copying issue that happened to Mimi Kirchner found a resolution

This new version of the London Bus ribbon came totally by surprise to me and I so love it.
Thanks to the amazing team at Baenderei Kafka who experimented with colors and Lurex again.
It´s a small edition ribbon and will be available for the first time tomorrow here
My voice is a bit thin at the moment due to an annoying flu, but if you are in the area,
I´d be happy to meet you

Nicola Holtkamps (former nicoletter) and Claudia Servatys book is out:
Liebenswert-Wohnen in FrankfurtRheinMain
It´s about living concepts in and around Frankfurt.
Tomorrow I´m looking forward to learn knitting from some lovely ladies and to listening to his weeping guitar
in the evening. Haven´t been to a concert since long.
Do you have plans for the weekend?

so the telephone ribbon is now available again
Now it´s mine, mine, MINE :)
The amazing Kafka team also experimented with using Lurex thread for the Telephone,
which I think looks lovely too, especially for the Xmas season.
I got a very small bunch of these glittering ribbons, only a few meters
of each color, which I added to shop too.
The old looms are currently busy weaving the London bus ribbons again, so these should arrive next week.
But small amounts of the 3 colors are still available.
Wishing you a lovely, glittery weekend!

Little Britain ribbons. These brooches are made by Mona and available in her Dawanda Shop
There´s a long interview with French bear designer Cyriaque L. on Dawanda France blog

We already got some feedback and interest in the "Trunk Show" idea. Thank you!
We still need some more participants, but chances are good that it will take place.
