“custom designed homeware in my signature style colour palette of sophisticated chalky pastels.”
After intense research, visiting manufacturing shows and looking carefully at lots of UK manufacturers, I narrowed down my list of factories to visit. Over the twelve past months I have worked closely with the very best UK homeware manufacturers to get my first set of samples perfect. I have made sure that I've learned about the manufacturing processes involved in production. How ceramics start with a screen print that is used to make the transfers, which are then hand applied before going into the kiln. How melamine is moulded and then hand sanded to get the perfect shape. Of course, when it came to the kitchen textiles, I was on more familiar ground, having worked with textiles for as long as I can remember.
So today, please let me introduce you to the Maisy Tea Towel...
A 100% cotton tea towel that is screen printed and heat-cured through huge gas dryers ensuring excellent colour-fastness. Check out the little video I made to see how the screen printing is done...
After the fabric is screen printed the tea towel is stitched together with a handy hanging loop. Check out the little video I made to see how the tea towel is stitched together..
If you would like to be the first to get your hands on one, two or four of my tea towels!
*THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE THESE PRODUCTS INTO A REALITY IS WITH YOUR SUPPORT!!
I need to raise a minimum of £5,000 in order to meet the minimum order quantities from the manufacturers. I am using this Kickstarter campaign to facilitate pre-orders directly from the range, at a reduced retail price. If I reach my target I will have enough funds to go into production, fulfil your pledges/pre-orders and get products on shelves, both physically and online. If I do not hit my goal no money changes hands and we will not receive funding. Likewise, you are not charged anything unless the project is 100% funded.
