rock scissor paper: Home Collection!

Susie from Rock Scissor Paper sent me an email on Friday with some very good news: the brand-new Home Collection from RSP is now available! I’ve been anticipating the arrival of this new line ever since Grace posted some sneak-peek snapshots from their tradeshow booth a few months back – and now that everything is here – the new problem is that I want it all! I have a feeling that hip hostesses everywhere will be digging these ultra-modern aprons

The Inspiration
I’m pasting part of Susie’s email below – in which she talks about what inspired herself and sister Heidi to create this new textile collection – because I thought you might enjoy it as much as I did:

“I just wanted let you know that Heidi & I just listed our new kitchen aprons, tea towels & coasters on to our site. This is our first foray into textile design and we are so excited about this collection!

Our father was a textile designer and manufacturer in the 1960′s-80′s. His specialty was knit fabrics in prints. He made his fortune (a very small one) on double knit fabrics in the 70′s. You know the fabric of the infamous leisure suit. He designed double knits to look like denim, in 70′s op-art prints and gingham to name a few. You can only imagine what our childhood wardrobes looked like when our Mom made our clothes from our Dad’s fabric!

Our father is no longer alive, but he definitely was there in spirit when we were designing this line!”

rock scissor paper: Home Collection!Last but not least, in celebration of the new home collection, Rock Scissor Paper is running a special deal where you get a surprise goody bag filled with assorted RSP products when you spend $40 or more between July 7 – 20th! With all the cool stuff at RSP, I’m pretty sure these goody bags will be good :)
