These beautiful prints are from the new fall line. As is true to our style, you can see we reveled in a symphony of color once again. Each of the colors and designs in these prints requires its own hand-cut screen. The screens themselves are works of art, each having been created by a team of skilled craftsman. Over the years we have accumulated so many of them that it gets a little hard to store them all, but we do. Keeping a library is important because I never know when the inspiration will strike to pull an element from a past design into a new one.
Here is a close-up shot of the screens after they have been put on rollers for printing. Depending on the design and textile it is going on, we sometimes print with rollers, while at other times we use flat screens that are pulled by hand. Once you see more of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into our products you'll see just how many hands and how much talent goes into creating the tablecloth you use on your table or the pretty new blouse you add to your fall wardrobe.
