Printing Pretty

My arms are aching after a mammoth month in the print studio dying and printing the winter collection which is available in shops now.  Here are some pics to wet your appetite.

The latest line offers powerful prints in a rich array of colours.

There are three design styles, polka dots, roses and subtle geometrics.  Each accessory consists of a two colour print and the silk scarves have been beautifully finished with a stroke of gold.  The silks are all hand finished with a rolled hem. The cotton handkerchiefs are sold individually and presented in a hand printed sleeve.

These designs are offered for this season only and will not be produced again, so if anything catches your eye, you’d better grab it quick!  Stockists so far are Soma in Clifton village, Makers Colston Street and they will also be available to buy online from the Studio Amour website very soon, so keep posted.

Fit for a Queen

I’ve been working on this one-off scarf design to commemorate this weekend’s Diamond Jubilee and it’s been submitted to Selvedge magazine as part of a competition.

I hand dyed the silk and then spent many days and nights layering colours to create this geometric diamond pattern incorporating 25 different colours.
