I gave my daughter this book as a gift and she loved the projects.

By RosaMaria R A 03 Jul 2013 3

This books is a compilations of proyects from bloggers. None of the projects were designed by the author/compiler. The most of them use linen to get the zakka look, but I think I can see how this would be inspirational, but it really does not contain many practical projects.

The book has cute patterns but its not very detailed in how to put everything together and then a few of the patterns in the back say to multiply the the pattern 200%. There's lots of eye candy in the book to be sure, the photos of the completed projects are gorgeous, but I prefer illustrations to written instructions.

Review quote

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 Zakka, a booming fashion and design phenomenon that has spread from Japan throughout Asia and to the Western world, is hard to define, so there is a touch of mystery about it, just like the Japanese tea-drinking ceremony. If we, like Wikipedia, describe Zakka as "anything and everything that improves your home, life and appearance", then this hardly narrows it down. And there is something about the detail, something stylish, self-expressive, almost spiritually simplistic, that makes Zakka stand apart from plain kitsch. Design Collective's Zakka Style goes some way towards removing the exclusivity that such design phenomena tend to exert, without ruining the special slightly secretive nature that is often associated with any new craft movement. Via its 24 projects, submitted by crafters the world over, it will introduce you to the colours, motifs and inspiration - often Nordic, contemporary and past - of the movement, and encourage you to develop your own unique interpretation. Whether you plan to make a messenger bag, mug rug, or quilt block magnets, all your homespun creations can become just that little bit extra-special, when you apply Zakka style. http://www.mumtopia.blogspot.co.uk/
