I truly believe that what makes a space a home is not just the walls, roof line or awesome location but the ingredients you add that makes up the recipe of what a home means to you. These ingredients can showcase a personality, family life, interests or passions.
After a strong career working within New Zealand's fashion industry, a love of abstract painting and all things decor, I felt it was time to combine my knowledge and creativity together. Hence the creation of the ingredients design brand. (known as texdesign here on Felt)
For my textiles I work with 100% linen fabric because of it's natural qualities and texture. It is a great surface to print on, organic, biodegradable, and most importantly one of the least invasive on our environment to produce.
Design ideas are sketched and tested before printing with water soluble inks . As each part of a design is individually placed and block printed by hand in my home studio, the resulting cloth takes on its own unique "handwriting" and no two are identical. All designs are limited quantities or collections and may not be repeated. Truly Handcrafted right here in NZ!
