Zakka, a Japanese term meaning "many things" or "miscellaneous goods," has evolved into a universal design style that embodies simple charm and a homemade aesthetic. This book showcases projects by fiber artists from around the globe who share this zakka style. The 24 projects comprise bags and totes in a variety of shapes and sizes as well as simple and sweet items like a pencil case, sewing kit, pincushion, patchwork ribbon, and picture frames. Coleman-Hale, who also writes the blog "I Heart Linen," demonstrates her affection for linen and the role it plays in Zakka Style: all the projects incorporate the natural fabric and exude an organic, homemade feel true to zakka --Christine French, International Quilt Festival Magazine - Quilt Scene, Winter 2012/2013
