We're very excited today to announce the Fabric8 finalists, eight talented designers whose designs won the most votes to go on to the final round of our competition. Each of the eight finalists will develop an additional three designs to form a collection for the final round. Voting on the finalists' collections will begin June 6, 2013, and the winner will be offered a contract to design fabric for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Congrats to the final 8 and to all the semi-finalists!
