Fettkakao is taking part in two seasonal markets this weekend. that’s why we have created this new pattern and format.
Small bags with a zipper, in a size to fit in yr drawing tools or whatever smaller items you want to carry. strengthened on the inside to make sure it is keeping things together.
We have used a few previous prints – like the primary color cube and the fried potato ones – but came up with a new one this week: waving hands for solidarity, sticking together. somekind of wishful thinking for the future, 2017 and beyond.
It will premiere Saturday, December 17th at Size Matters with a literal Fettkakao (Hot Chocolate) made by Andi – plus also have it at the more complete booth (with Records and stuff) at Salon Schräg on Sunday (dec 18) as well!
The items in various designs will be available from the homepage on this weekend as well. if you are in a hurry though – don’t hessitate to write an email (andi –at — fettkakao — doooot- — com) – some designs can ship from friday on.

colored in a washingmachine and hand tailored – you can now purchase the andi reenactment bags.
they are not backpacks, as shown in the picture above, but more like tote bags. each bag comes with a unique pocket inside, which might remind you of past projects.
these bags are available in different variations – please ask for your prefered combination.
drop me a mail if you are interested!

thanks to all of you who happened to be at the picknick last sunday. we had a great great launch party on a bright and warm spring day at the augarten in vienna. with a wonderfull laudatory by Martin Pieper while supermodel Flolita was walking around presenting the bag.
i sold all of them and took a lot of orders after the last one was gone. to inform you, who appear to be in the waiting line: i am working on the bags from next monday on. they will be custom made just for you.
and if you, dear reader, want to have one of those thingies then please drom me a mail >>andi at fettkakao dot com<< . i will make one for you immidatelly. it costs €15 (+ shipping if you happen to live far away or dont want to meet me).
here are some pictures the mighty Anna Kohlweis took of us kids while talking, drinking beer working out and smoking cigarettes. some of us fell asleep and woke up again.
thank you all. looking foreward to more parties like that with you. ❤
i did a little introduction about fettkakao fabric, in part 1. time has past since then. and a lot has happened in that time as well. really a lot. three records came out, 2 more are waiting to be released. i travelled to a lot of places, got to know nice people and have been involved in so many projects… to make this short: i was busy.
i thought i could launch fettkakao fabric in march, which i simply couldnt. but between all the business – my family, friends and me were working on it to make it real.
here’s the story.
i am launching fettkakao fabric on sunday with the very first thing: tote bags. my father and me chose that as a project to teach me do straight stiches. my father is a master taylor and i am learning from him.
to make more out of it, i asked nick to help me with it. the initial idea was to create a pattern and then having people involved who do nice things/ designs. while sitting in the kitchen, drawing, we came to the idea that with the 9 letters fettkakao has, we can make cubes that – in three colours – are to be read in cube form or .. in a straight line. yes. nick’s a professional.
the next step was to set up a screen with which we can print the colours on the fabric… and a system, to put the three colours in the exact place. this took a while – until agnes stepped in and made us a fuctionable stencil. she’s the best.
we had parties. printing parties. i got help from agnes, berni, nick, cordula, clemens and valerie. these kids did a lot. you rule!
with the printed stuff i went to my father. to cut, iron and sew.
(yeah that’s me)
the toties have little bags on the inside (as you can see on the pic above) – where you can put stuff into. big enough for your iphone or ipod, chewing gums, little pen & eraser, hairtie, condoms, buttons, small presents and candy.
bleeh. the bags look like this, have official labels on the sides and stuff.
oh well. my friend nick did a video: fettkakao propaganda number 4. watch it as it explains and shows you the most.
we will be presenting the toties on sunday may 20th on a picnic at the augarten in vienna (close to the bunkrei). we will be there from 4pm on, stittng around, at a certain point maybe talking aboutbags baby and showing some to you, and the few i will have with me will be for sale. kids. after that you can order toties from me; then you will get a custom made one, yup yup. you know where to write an email to.
here’s the flyer for the party. if you intend to come: bring drinks, food and friends. and games to play!
yippie! fettkakao fabric is official now. in summer i am starting a new project. which will be something to wear…
see you soon. fabrighost says good bye.-
last year was kinda busy. at least around this time. i had 4 releases in the oven. but the situation was similar: after september 2010 (festkakao and two 7″es at the same time) i haven’t had a release until the beginning of 2011. even though we had plans for fall. last year it was stefanie sourials CD that came out more than 6 month later, this time it is the great fuegos album we have in the oven for so long already, and the armin lorenz 7″. both records will happen. and are more than worth their wait i can assure you.
behind the scenes me, my friends and family were busier. and our ideas grew into reality. i started to take sewing lessons, learning to work with fabric with my father. and am at the beginning, still. nick and me came up w/ the idea to print textile, so that i can start learning to sew on those, which helps my father and me since we have defined projects that way. nick and me had the idea for a three colour print – cubes, that need to be put in a rather exact order – so that you -dear reader- can read the name of the little art platform in three colours… im glad i got help from agnes, who’s a very precise person and made us the perfect stencil for the screen. here’s an insight on how we work, put the pattern on the fabric. and. to be honest: i love the way it looks with the construction aspect of it.
this was the first attempt to make it right. the full disclosure will follow, also what we are using the fabric for.
fettkakao stoff = fettkakao fabric. and is happening already. hello 2012. more soon.
