I'm excited to announce that Wiksten has been working on a fun new collaboration with Helen Dealtry, head designer at Woking Girl Designs.  Woking Girl is a company that designs textiles, and Helen paints many of the designs by hand before they are scanned into a computer and digitally printed on fabric. All of her work is gorgeous!  I'm so exited to have found Helen--she's incredibly talented, not to mention one of the most stylish ladies I know.  Check out the Woking blog here.  I can't wait to show you pictures tomorrow of what we designed together.

I'm completely fascinated by her process...
Excited to see what you made!
