THE PROCESS

Linen fabric is the canvas of Louisa’s work, with each block print twisting and turning to make simple geometric patterns, finished with hand-painted details. The block is covered in dye and then pressed onto the fabric to create a pattern over the surface. Louisa works within a strong and limited palette for her collections, only adding sewn dots or handpainted flecks as careful accents. There is a freedom and simplicity to her work. Each run of fabric is unique.

Maker's Quote

The lines and structures of nature always find their way into my work. I always aim to experiment, and remain playful with the block and the lines and marks that I make.
