    Kaffe Fassett vs Kaffe Fassett Collective?

    So this is a puzzle that has had me wondering for some time...

    What is the difference between Kaffe Fassett fabrics and Kaffee Fassett Collective fabrics?

    Who or what is the Collective, and what makes a fabric part of the Collective's offerings?

    Re: Kaffe Fassett vs Kaffe Fassett Collective?

    I know Brandon Mably and Phillip Jacobs are the other members of the Kaffe Collective. The three are designers who work together.

    This is from Brandon Mably's web site: "Brandon Mably designs knitwear patterns for Vogue Knitting and Rowan Yarns, and leads workshops in knitwear design and use of colour throughout the world.

    For over a decade, Brandon has been the Studio Manager of Kaffe Fassett Studio in London England, and has worked closely with Kaffe in the design, creation, and execution of knitwear, tapestry, patchwork, mosaic, and mixed media artwork. While working side by side with Kaffe, Brandon has honed his unique style of bold design and vibrant colour.

    Brandon travels throughout the world teaching workshops, learning from indigenous design styles, and finding inspiration from the people and communities he visits."

    I also found this about him:

    he also designs fabric and quilts.

    I found this out about Philip Jacobs:

    Kaffe's biography:

    But to answer your question, packs that say "Kaffe Collective" could have fabric by these three. However you can find yardage attributed to each singly. Their fabrics sometimes do seem to match to each other in colors and theme of the prints, but not always.

    I hope this helps!

      There are a number of other designers who are part of the Kaffe Fassett Collective, Phillip Jacobs and Brandon Mabley are two that I know of. They design in similar styles and colorways as Kaffe does.
