eco find :: ink & spindle

| handmade

i've been slightly obsessing over ink & spindle for a little while now- and thought i should at least give you the opportunity to do the same! these three lovely ladies were brought together by their common passion for screen printed textiles and sustainable alternatives.  all of their fabric is printed on an organic cotton/hemp blend, with environmentally friendly, solvent free inks- yeah!

this is just a sneak peek of their beautiful designs. my first ink & spindle love was the birch forest print in robins egg (upper left).  i want to make curtains from it!

now i could really get creative in a space like this...

here are the gals hard at work screen printing the fabric.  do you see how yummy that birch forest is in gold? sigh...
