Finnish Bon Bon Kakku is a net store that gives the customers the opportunity to design their own fabrics and sometimes even see them being produced. Everything takes place online at www.bonbonkakku.com where you can submit and rate designs. When a fabric receives enough votes from the web site visitors, it is put into production and can be bought directly from the site. A great way to give new designers and patterns a chance, if you ask me. And a great way to modernize an old company: Bon Bon Kakku is owned by the Finnish fabric and interior manufacturer Vallila Interior, a 70 year old, family owned company that once started as a textiles mill.
