If you missed part 1 of My Fabric Line Is On The Market click here.
With roll upon roll of fabrics and wallcoverings ready to be either printed or shipped I was a girl in paradise.
This big, bad boy is the steamer room that will make charcoal out of you in nothing flat. It is here that excess dye is removed and sizing is added to give the fabric a soft hand.
The very first decision that has to be made before printing can begin is which ground fabric you want to use. There are hundreds of options from Belgian linen to China Silk. Within each category are sub-categories based on weight, finish etc.
The grey goods are pre-washed to remove any impurities or finishes that might be on them that would affect printing.
So these people now print for Duralee, Highland Court, Thibaut, Kelly Werstler, Ralph Lauren, Schumacher…… and ….. me?
How does that even happen. God is amazing.
Stay tuned for the final installment of old world meets new in the land of fabric design.
