THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED. CLICK HERE TO SEE IF YOU'RE THE WINNER!
Happy Easter, to those who celebrate. I have something sugar-free (and bunny-free) to sweeten your day! Remember the beautiful, graphic tea towel I received from Berlin-based shop laKattun? You're in for a treat because laKattun shop owner and designer Eva is offering a special giveaway item for Dans le Townhouse readers!
You could win this beautiful orange-printed Oval Fabric Basket. The design is called Seegras (meaning "seagrass" in English). Eva hand printed and sewed it, using organic cotton canvas, and eco-friendly solvent-free water-based textile ink. I think this would be a beautiful and casual way to store so many things.

Get to know Eva!
What I love about Etsy is that often you really connect with the person behind the designs. Getting to know Eva has been so interesting. She's originally from Vienna but has been based in Berlin for 10 years. She definitely makes me want to travel to Germany, because she says Berlin is a vibrant city with creative people and the city nurtures small businesses! Although she has a background in Geography, her mother taught her to sew and she taught herself to print fabrics using stamping, block and screen printing. Isn't that amazing? I'm so inspired by people who are self-taught, and by people who have such diverse interests and skills.
Eva draws each design by hand, first, then makes a stamp of the design to test how it will look as a repeat pattern. She says everything inspires her, from architecture to flora, even music. She uses organic cottons and eco-friendly, water-based inks so customers can enjoy the feel of her products as well as the design. She sells her hand printed fabrics by the meter and also as hand sewn products in her Etsy shop. She currently shares a studio space with three other women, which I can only imagine must be so fabulous for generating creativity.
I have to say, I am still absolutely in love with the quality and aesthetic of my Zebraria tea towel and am more than a little jealous of this sweet prize. Lucky you. Have a great long weekend!
