I am thrilled to announce that after five years of designing textiles, I am finally launching my own product line, Printed Linen!
Over the past year I have been working on a bespoke range of organic linen homewares, featuring my designs. All of the prints are hand painted and illustrated by me, with a careful amount of consideration!
While the colours and designs may have changed during the twelve month sampling phase, one thing that didn’t was my desire to do things sustainably. Each piece is hand made in Australia and printed on organic linen. Deciding to have my designs printed onto natural fabric was an easy decision.
Even though the cost is much higher for me working this way, it is much lower for our planet. Purchasing organic linen isn’t just better for the world, the water ways, the air, or for you and your skin, it’s a choice towards what sort of consumer you want to be.
While I am no saint, over the years I have begun to develop a heightened consciousness, which draws me to question many choices I make in my adult life as a consumer and product producer. I am often stuck in the middle of two mindsets. Two different people, the person I am and the person I want to be.
Through my journey of Textile Design over the past 5 years, I have learnt a lot about the product design industry. It drew me closer to producing ethical products made with natural fibres and durability. I do what I can to be conscious in my decision-making and still love the spaces around me whilst doing it. I think there is an art in the possessions we collect, in the person we strive to be.
I am so proud of every single piece in this range. Purchasing Printed Linen is choosing to support Australian made, natural fabrics, designed exclusively with the passionate, on-trend woman in mind.
I hope you like my debut range, please let me know what you think and which piece has your heart!
A word from Britt,
