To help celebrate the launch of East Fork’s collection colors Malibu and Tequila Sunrise, we’re challenging the Spoonflower community to create a repeating pattern that perfectly pairs with this iconic ceramic dinnerware. But there’s a twist! Create your own color palette featuring at least one of the two collection colors listed below as the main color* in your design.


Overview

Inspired by 5 a.m. surf sessions in Malibu and 6 p.m. bonfires on Dockweiler State Beach, the Spring/Summer 2020 East Fork collection was designed to bring a warming glow to your home and call attention to sunrises and sunsets of your own past and present. As you get started on your design, remember to think about how someone might pair your design on a placemat or tea towel with their coveted East Fork mug or plate. Before you start, get to know East Fork.
