fabrics by hand


Our patterns have been called bold, graphic, happy, and even whimsical.

Inspired by any simple shape, our patterns start as hand sketches using markers and then are painted in the Pawtucket, Rhode Island studio. The sketches are put into repeat for printing using traditional hand printing methods, in an historic Rhode Island textile mill that has been in operation since 1937. Dye is squeezed through a 54" wide screen that takes two people to move together down the 50 yard long printing table. Colors and textures vary slightly and are characteristic of hand printed textiles.

Many of the patterns for our pillows are available by the yard to the trade.
