Like a fresh wind blowing through the trees on a beautiful spring day, Tilda projects are warm, refreshing, whimsical, and romantic.
If you’ve not met Tilda, you are in for quite a treat! This brand is, as the creator puts it, ‘perfectly imperfect’. With Tilda, you can enter a world full of warm colors, beautiful florals, fun characters, and projects for every occasion. Originally started as a fabric company, the Tilda brand was formed in 1999 by Norwegian designer Tone Finnanger, and has grown to encompass fabrics, ribbons, buttons, kits, accessories, and books. Whether you’ve already fallen in love with Tilda or have never glimpsed one of her designs, we invite to you step inside the world of Tilda and take a look around.
Meet the Designer of Tilda
Tone Finnanger is a Norwegian native, hailing from Oslo and now living on an island in the Oslo fjord where she creates Tilda designs. With a background in fine art and graphic design, Tilda was born as more than a brand, but as a lifestyle for Tone. The fabric designs and stunning projects showcase her love for the whimsical and romantic – she describes it “like a ball gown worn with wellies.” Through her passion Tone has gathered a team of talented individuals to make the world of Tilda what it is today.
Tone’s love of design shines through in the whimsical prints of her fabric collections. From beautiful florals to more rustic animal prints, the fabrics have their own unique personality that isn’t seen in other fabric brands. Each fabric collection is unique, but they all complement each other, lending perfectly to mixing-and-matching.
No project is complete until the final button is sewn in place or that last bit of trim is added. The team at Tilda creates buttons, ribbons, thread, and more notions that perfectly pair with the fabrics making it easy to finish each of your Tilda projects in style.
Quilters and sewists alike love the Tilda projects and it’s easy to see why. They range from simple pin cushions and fun dolls to stuffed animals and bed-sized quilts. You could style your whole home with all the projects that Tilda offers and you will want to after seeing the gorgeous images.
The Characters of Tilda
Tilda is not just a fabric brand with pretty projects. Tilda is a world with its very own characters. From the iconic slim dolls to the long-limbed animals (including rabbits, foxes, and monkeys), these characters carry along the whimsy of Tilda everywhere they go. By creating your own Tilda character you too enter this wonderfully whimsical world.
Bringing the beauty of Tilda to life, Tone Finnanger’s books theme her fabrics, projects, characters, and accessories together into one collection. From seasonal inspiration to locations like the seaside, these books offer something for everyone.
