With a love for traditional methods, utilitarian form, and contemporary style, our floorcloth and print studios focus on bringing back lost concepts from the past. While both pieces of work differ in method and purpose, they both share the same intention of using intuitive practices of the past in combination with modern materials and aesthetics, creating functional, durable and practical pieces to enhance a more holistic and simplistic lifestyle.
Floorcloths: Adamant about structural integrity, after years of trial fabrication and material tests we have found the most appropriate combinations of natural heavy weight canvas and marine grade acrylics to create a rug which is easy to clean, stain resistant and hypoallergenic. These benefits accommodate a lifestyle where work boots are rarely taken off at the front door and muddy paw prints are common in all four seasons. Longing to combined such a structurally solid form with a level of unique visual interest, we introduce a collection of hand painted contemporary designs incorporating various painting techniques resulting in truly functional, practical and durable floor coverings. Prints: A love for unique prints and a respect for tradition printing methods is what motivates us at the print studio on a daily basis. Our Canvas Flags, Pillows, Totes and more are printed with hand-cut block-prints on an 1885 Chandler & Price Letterpress. Using traditional printing methods, each piece is hand fed into the press and printed one at a time, creating a truly unique patina.
