Behind the scenes


Welcome to behind the scenes on a tour of our fabulous digital printers right here in the North of England where Hannah’s designs are transformed from digital designs into gorgeous natural fabrics ready to be brought back to Yorkshire for cutting and sewing into final products. The family run printing business was founded over 50 years ago in this small northern town where traditional screen printing methods are used alongside new innovative printing technology which allow fabrics to be printed with myriads of colours and in large scale repeats, ideal for Hannah’s watercolour designs. We were delighted to be able to follow the route of the designs which are first loaded onto the printing machines and printed onto specially coated natural fabrics (in this case a lovely 50% cotton/50% linen fabric), the fabric is then steamed to fix the dyes, conditioned and washed so ensure a soft feel before drying and finally rolling ready to be sent out…
