Latifah’s “Grafic” was first released at 2016 Spring Quilt Market in Salt lake City. hers is The first screenprint collection under the me + You brand of modern fabrics.
Latifah Saafir is known for her bold and innovative modern quilts. She combined her education in engineering with her lifelong passion for sewing to launch a pattern design company. Her love for textiles and quilting grew into a desire to design a fabric line, and Hoffman Fabrics couldn’t be happier to have her as its newest signature designer!
Latifah’s “Grafic” is the first screenprint collection of Me + You, the modern division of Hoffman Fabrics. The line pays homage to Latifah’s “wonder years” growing up in Los Angeles where graffiti and street art influenced her explorations in creativity. “The line is not reflective of the art itself,” she said. “Instead, it is about celebrating the environments where it is found and the graphic elements that inspire it.”
