Super cute with a super expensive price tag. I love "Abby" with the owls and trees. Available at Pottery Barn Kids.
Mr. By the Bolt was just in Finland where he bought me a beautiful Marimekko bag. I was inspired to look into vintage Marimekko on Flickr. Much, much more (including lots of vintage Marimekko clothing) there! Check it out!
Ikat recently went through a run of popularity with mags like Domino giving it press, famous designers making expensive clothing from it and chain home furnishings stores like Pottery Barn carrying it on their pillows shelves. My favorite kind of ikat is from Orissa (top photo).
