we are two graphic designers based in York, UK and Pau, France. We have long been friends and have chosen to work together to create designs and bags of which we could do all the steps.
Thus the bags in the "afternoon at the beach" collection were manufactured one by one following these steps:
- design of unique patterns and fabric cutting (in natural materials, linen or cotton)
- pattern drawing
- linocut of the stamps (engraved with a gouge in a linoleum board)
- mixing colours with professional water-based inks that are environmentally friendly from Permaset
- printing of patterns with previously engraved stamps
Each bag is numbered and printed in limited quantities, new models will come along as we carry out our experiments
