Addicted to patterns sustainable philosophy
Over the years we have developed the workflow which is efficient and environmentally friendly „Every day we use materials that come from local, UK suppliers. In Print process we use water based paints (for both wallpapers and textiles) our Artisan wallhangings are painted with Victory Colours Eco Paint range, paper contains No PVC and comes from well managed source.
Our screen printed and hand illustrated wallpapers and textiles are made to individual order. We print only the length needed to decorate walls or a room, which helps us to limit the off-cuts and lowers general waste.
We print with passion, for individuals who care about ethics and aesthetics. Printable and big range of colours destined for painting are mixed by hand in our studio. This is what brings individuality to every wallpaper or fabric ordered from our seasonal collections.
Taking care of the environment also means that we recycle and re-use as many materials as possible. We find this sustainable philosophy raises our sense of creativity.”
