Welcome to our new look website which features our current wallpaper collection and first hand silk screen printed fabric which is available by the metre and made up into cushions and lampshades!
The Launch of our First Fabric
As a designer it is a goose-pimply moment when a design is being printed for the first time. Thirty five metres of base cloth laid out along the table, prepared for print is exciting. The first design I selected to be printed was the Budgie, which has 6 colours, each colour requiring its own silk screen. The first screen down printed an all over pattern of birdcages to cover the cloth and give the design some depth. This is hand screen printed down the length of the table using water based pigment inks, and then once dried, the next colour is printed over the top and again until all five consecutive colours are printed.
This is a labour intensive production method to say the least! It requires a skilled printer to achieve a high quality result. After the fabric is printed it is baked to ‘set’ the inks and then finally inspected, rolled and stored carefully.
The second colour-way will be available in July. Keep your eyes peeled!
