Australian textile designers have a distinct style with many now opting for organic and natural fabrics including cotton/linen blends or hemp. Using inks that are water based and solvent free, their designs are hand screen printed.
Below are a just few of the amazingly talented designers.
Danielle Smeets of 'Of Paper and Thread' is based in Western Australian. She is a designer who uses a linen/cotton blend to make short run limited edition textiles.
Caitlin from Melbourne's Pippijoe creates the most wonderful designs on natural fibres including 100% hemp or hemp/cotton blend. Her fabric's come in different weights from the lighter weight used for bags, clothing & crafts and also in a heavier weight.
Lara Cameron is definitely one of my favourite textile designers and The Haby Goddess stocks a range of Lara's fabrics and products. With a career in web & graphic designer she is now applying her designs to hand screen printed fabrics which we just love!
Thea from Thea & Sami hand screen prints organic and hemp/organic fabrics. She locally produces a gorgeous range of homewares including linen & lampshades from her fabrics.
