Sometimes it all begins in the printing studio. My daughter, Gabrielle, was majoring in printmaking, and before she creates her artwork on paper, she’ll test her drawings, silk-screens or monotypes on a piece of pure linen. This tester-print will either be the inspiration of a new range of fabrics or it may be an individual artwork – a one of its kind!

This limited range of 'mannetjie' drawings by her was pigment printed on a beautiful pure linen and then dip dyed into different colors.  Hand dyeing can often be unpredictable, but we value these subtle shifts and changes in hue and embrace them as part of our manufacturing process. These beautiful variations mean patterns and colors will vary and that each piece is unique. 

All our textiles are designed and produced in Cape Town, in small editions. It is important to remember that with handmade products, one should handle it with the delicate care that one would with any piece of art.  Repeated washing or prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause colours to fade.

Please follow the care instructions thoughtfully.   We suggest hand washing with a gentle washing powder when necessary. Note: this item may experience shrinkage after the first wash as the linen has not been pre-shrunk.  Never machine wash, soak, spot clean, tumble dry or bleach your printed linen product. Iron on medium as necessary.

Details: 100% Pure Linen.  Size: Rectangle 48 x 68cm, but slight size variations may occur.
