This week has seen the start of the test printing of the three new designs of the Spring/Summer collection. I announced their names last week and now here is the chance to see a sneak preview of the designs themselves. All three are test printed first on unbleached calico, the final designs are then printed on a gorgeous eco-bleach hemp and organic cotton mix fabric.
The first to be printed on Monday was Deco. I decided to print it up in Royal Blue as I’m thinking of a darker blue for one of the colours in the new collection so I wanted to see what impact the design would have in blue.
Next up on Tuesday was Thunderbolt and here is what happens when you’ve been staring at colour all week – I printed it up in red when I didn’t even have red on the list for this design. Doh! I really like it in red now that I’ve seen it though.
And last but not least, this morning started off with Trinity printed in Forest Green. Again, I’m thinking about a green for this print so I wanted to see what it would look like in a similar colour.
I’ve decided to go for three different colourways for the new designs but this time, one of the colours is going to be on a coloured base cloth. So two will be on an eco bleach and the third on either a pale grey, green or orange 100% hemp or hemp and organic cotton mix fabric.
So that’s a mini introduction to Deco, Thunderbolt and Trinity, I hope you like them.
