Seashells. Every so often certain designs will start to make Jana antsy. Shellini is one such design. For years she wanted to change it up and put an editing hand to it. Finally she set her mind to it, but instead of editing it as she intended, she completely redid it and so the resulting print is a fully reimagined version of Shellini. Interestingly enough, Seashell is probably the most true to life of all the Jana Lam prints except for ‘Ae which was drawn purposefully to look just like the actual fern. For this design, Jana drew a few shells from actual photos, and for others she combined parts and pieces here and there from different shells and put them together, and sometimes she made them up altogether. Jana will always be fond of this print because when she was tracing all the shells that make up this print (and there were more, it’s actually been edited down, with shells taken out, she was totally in the zone and only goofed up and used white out a couple of times. She’s really proud of the precise and detailed nature of this new print
Starfish. This is actually the second iteration of this print. It’s a less pointy but more playful version than the original, which gave the Jana Lam team problems when trying to cut perfectly placed pieces for each accessory. It was reimagined and created around the same time as Fan Palm, so it also has thin graphic lines and a whimsical feel to it. If you’re a playful person who loves the idea of starfish that sprout hibiscuses, this print is for you.
Sunny. Sunny is one of the remaining prints from the By the Sea Collection which originated way back when, 5 years ago. The coveted sunrise shell was being snatched out of the ocean sands by the boatful, and its popularity as an item of jewelry was really high. Since it was such a shell superstar, Jana thought it was only right for it to have its own print, and it has been around ever since; a lovely and spirited bonus to the JANA LAM catalog.
All Jana Lam Handmade in Hawaii textiles are silk-screened by hand on cotton fabrics with water-based inks. Coaster sets are made from a 100% cotton in a variety of different fabric styles, and reinforced with fleece interfacing to give the fabric some shape with a soft feel.
The #janalamfam recommends spot cleaning when smaller spots show up. We usually use Shout Wipes for that, but Jana has used tide pens in the past. Make sure if there is a white top print to be a little more gentle on rubbing spots out. Since the ink sits on top of the fabric a bit more than other colors, there is a chance of the ink rubbing off and getting on other parts of the fabric.
But, you can put your Jana Lam's in the wash. We usually use a hand wash cycle and lay flat to dry. After it's dried, it is always good to give it a little bit of an iron. We use 100% cotton fabric, so it may shrink in the dryer, but will definitely stand up to ironing.
