‘Geometry is the scaffolding of life. Squares, rectangles and geometric ribbons – the architecture around us is filled with geometric forms.

These become wonderful shapes to feed colours into.’

How it all began…


The design for On Point began as a series of three geometric needlepoint canvases Kaffe created for the collection: Tumbling Blocks, Ribbon Weave and Bordered Squares.

Tumbling Blocks is one of civilisation’s oldest geometric forms. ‘I have seen examples from ancient Roman times, marvellous mosaics in stonework, in fabulous floors, in elegant old buildings and in simple garden paths,’ says Kaffe.

Ribbon Weave is similar to basket weave: ‘I think of it as bordered ribbons of colours – we call it ribbon weave,’ he says. ‘I love baskets and I love old patchwork quilts that use a kind of basket weave idea. I love it when it is done in embroidery and through the centuries it has been a recurring geometric form.’

Bordered Squares ‘One of the things that attracts me to patchwork is how many hundreds of ways that people use a square, to create amazing quilts. Nine Patch is one of the most famous – and there are 150,000 ‘nine patch’ ideas in the world,’ he says. Collective Hand Creams uses all three designs.

Kaffe has used one of his favourite floral needlepoint designs for the Cosmetic Bag, thus weaving the enduring concept of flowers and colour into the geometric design. Layering geometrics with florals is another Kaffe Fassett signature.

WORKING WITH KAFFE WE HAVE CAPTURED HIS WISH TO CREATE A FRAGRANCE THAT MEN AND WOMEN WILL LOVE. IT IS INSPIRED BY THE BALANCE AND HARMONY OF HIS UNIQUE DESIGNS AND COLOUR SCHEMES FOR NEEDLEPOINT.


“I wanted a scent that gives the feeling of health and freshness with an antique undertone – so not too light yet not at all heavy.”

"Needlepoint is like a meditation. It’s both rhythmic and constructive – at the end of the day you have something lovely – a cushion for the couch, a pair of slippers or a waistcoat."
