New fabrics in production!

Down at the studio we're still traveling along the learning curve, fine tuning our processes and making things easier and smoother. We're still a little way off printing for other people but have done a bunch of test runs that are more than worthy of going in my shop! First they have to be heat-set though, so they wont appear in the shop for another week or so:


Acacia in plum on cream


New Birch test run on some white demin courtesy of Mattt


Printing the new Birch in gold - reach! (this is actually a lot easier than it looks)


Temporary drying solution (lucky we can offset our carbon emissions from this baby)


Acacia on natural, work in progress.

Yellow birch! eeeeeeeep! I'm getting my hands on some of that for sure......

Seeing it all in one piece like that makes me want about a thousand yards of it - you should do wallpaper!
