Bold by Design: Kaffe Fassett
Kaffe Fassett has dedicated the last 50 years of his life to the world of knitting, needlepoint, and patchwork, promoting these crafts through his own work and encouraging others to find their own creativity.
Over the years, Kaffe has participated in various exhibitions and solo shows of his needlework – needlepoint, knitting, patchwork, and costumes and sets. It was in 1988, when Kaffe became the first living textile artist to have a one-man show at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, that the stage was set for his worldwide popularity.
A large part of Kaffe’s output is now an expanding range of fabric prints for the patchwork market, along with the Indian striped fabric and shot cotton fabric which are distributed worldwide by Westminster Fibers, USA and Rowan, UK. He teaches individuals all over the world to work with color in an instinctive way. Kaffe’s unique sense of color, drive to create, and his desire to encourage others has led to his reputation as a guru in the world of color and textiles.
