Artwork by UK textile designer and fine artist, Maxine Sutton.
“My work continues to explore the interplay between screen-printed and embroidered textures, colour, mark, drawn and stitched lines. Often playing with imagery and ideas springing from our relationship with familiar domestic objects, everyday pastimes, the meaning of ‘home’ and home-making activities. Abstract and semi-figurative forms combined with pattern and texture present an ambiguous narrative.”

Wish we had more bare walls in our studio so we can put up some of these prints, particularly the “We Love Graphic Design” print. They are the creations of Hvass & Hannibal, a multi-disciplinary arts and design studio based in Copenhagen. Some of these prints are available here in their shop at Big Cartel.

These amazing fabrics are the products of Sudarshan, a textile company in India that develops and produces high quality handcrafted textiles. These particular fabrics are handblock printed by skilled artisans who carve the hardwood and with skilled precision prints the inked hardwood to the fabric. The company was founded by textile designer, Hemangini Singh, who states:
“I started Sudarshan because I love textiles and wanted to make a difference in the lives of artisans in India by creating awareness and expanding markets for these beautiful textiles.”
