Minted, the online marketplace that sources designs from a global community of artists, is branching out into the world of fabrics. Though the SF-based company is primarily known for cute stationery designs, WWD reports that a $38 million round of financing is helping Minted target the textile and home decor sector. In a post on the company's blog, founder and CEO Mariam Naficy writes, "Over the past seven years, Minted has focused on creating beautiful one-of-a-kind paper goods – stationery, party décor and art – and starting today, you'll be able to find the same high-quality, highly unique assortment you've come to expect from us in fabrics, sold by the yard." Just what you needed: More temptation on Minted while ordering holiday cards.
