We’re thrilled to introduce our fabric by the yard line! There are five patterns and several color ways per style. We’d love to hear which one is your favorite. The line is available in our online shop as well as Studio Four in NYC.
The designs are printed at Griswold Textile Print in Rhode Island, using vat dyes that are thickened with gum and water. We prefer printing with dye, instead of pigment because it produces a softer hand feel as the dye bonds with the fabric. Founded in 1937, our printer is a family-owned and operated mill that uses eco-friendly materials, methods and disposal. We’re using 100% Belgian linen sourced through Libeco Linen which we love not only for it’s hand feel and quality but also because it is ethically produced.
Much of the inspiration again comes from my childhood growing up on Cape Cod. The off-season with the deserted beaches, shifting light, and coastal color palette is ingrained in my sensibilities. I want everything to be livable, but layered and interesting. My process for all of these designs begins in my sketchbook as well as by painting directly onto the fabric. I then give the hand painted fabrics to both the screen engravers and printers so we can talk about the overall feeling that fabric should have and the best way to achieve it.
