"The inspiration for Driftless came from a spillway on the Mississippi just a few miles south down the river from where I live. I grew up along the Mississippi and it always feels right to honor that. I spent many summers on the beaches of the river and have lots of memories involving the plants! I used to love rattling the old water lily casings. There’s something mysterious about the plants that grow along the water’s edge...
Other inspiration for the designs came from algea, loons, the clouds and their reflections on the water, grasses along the edge, butterfly weed, and water lilies floating along the water’s surface. The designs felt like they took on a life of their own and I feel like it was just was I was looking for.
The name of the collection, Driftless, felt appropriate because where I live is part of what is known as the Driftless area. It’s a very special place in southwestern Wisconsin, southeastern Minnesota, northeastern Iowa, and the extreme northwestern corner of Illinois where the glaciers of the last ice age did NOT affect the landscape. In fact, the glaciers missed the area entirely, leaving steep, forested bluffs, deep river valleys, spring-fed waterfalls and cold-water trout streams." Anna Graham

I ordered several linen Driftless fabrics from this shop to make a couple of the designer’s bags. The fabrics arrived faster than I expected and are all beautiful. This is one the the stores I will most certainly look at again when I am not able to find what I need locally.
