Bohemian Ladies!

The new Laini's Ladies "Bohemian Collection" is out in stores! I showed off the "holiday" Bohemian ladies here a few months ago; these are the "everyday" Bohemians. I chose that name to distinguish the line from the other Laini's Ladies because I was shooting for a more pattern-oriented look and I was using antique textiles I'd purchased in Turkey and Bulgaria to create some of the patterning. I love the new look, and the use of a single word rather than a long quote, though quotes will be back, I have no doubt!

I'm currently creating another new line, and I'm playing with more ideas to keep the designs fresh and interesting for myself. All I'll say for now is that the "Muse of Chocolate" might soon find her way into the world!

Here are the rest of the new designs:

And here are some of the greeting cards:

(All Laini's Ladies items can be found here.)

Laini, these are so fabulous! i want all of them hanging from my computer monitor for inspiration :-) x

Holly Stinnett said...

Oh Laini, they are all just so beautiful. I tried to choose a favorite and couldn't do it! I know a few places that carry your work so next time I'm there, I'll definitely support your art and buy some.

Deb R said...

They're beautiful!! I'm rather yearning after Ms. Seek. I may have to buy myself a gift. :-)

I have "shocking" hanging from my kitchen window, as does my sister and my mother...And just the other day I saw your Ladies in a shop in my sister's downtown. Congratulations, they're beautiful.

Amber said...

Lovely, Laini! Ideas for Christmas. I have about five teacher friends who would love the "teach" lady.

Alexandra S said...

Look at little xegbp, shamelessly petitioning herself for ladies! i suggest that you barter ladies for Saint cupcakes & YUKI's next week!! You could really, really cash in, and ask for a car too.

I've got to look in the store where I found your other Laini's Ladies and see if they have them in, yet - if they don't. I'll demand that they order them immediately, heehee *_*

I have one...have gifted the ladies very much. These new patterns are just beautiful. I have some spaces waiting...

katie said...

Your ladies are absolutely awesoome Laini, you were so generous to gift some to us at our wonderful Thai dinner. I got twelve tags (lucky me!) and I'm in a Christmas swap with 13 artists. They will each get one of your beautiful tags with their gift. It was so wonderful meeting you, Jim, Alexandra, and Kelly Rae. It made my Portland experience all the more special. I've linded your blog to mine so I can keep up with you - you are SO talented and prolific!
