Organic cotton/hemp goodness
New unbleached cotton/hemp basecloth - oooooooooh
2010 seems to be the year for doing all those things we've been wanting to do for ages. Releasing a proper collection of textiles was one of those things, the other was to start printing exclusively on organic textiles and phase out our old cotton/linen basecloths.
The biggest challenge was finding a suitable replacement for the darker natural cotton/linen cloth. But finally we have!!!
The new unbleached organic cotton/hemp basecloth is just beautiful! We've printed quite a few runs on this basecloth now but we still go "oooooooooh" every time we do! It's just that little bit lighter than the natural, and all of our prints look so much better for it.
We're slowly working our way through the range so not everything has changed over yet, but here's what we've done so far:
Blue Wrens in Inky Blue
Ginkgo in Snow & Olive
Lace Fans in Robins Egg
Ginkgo in Snow & Deep Red
Bonsai in Deep Red
We hope you like it as much as we do :)
