In this technological age, drawing and craftsmanship remain fundamental to my work. 

I design and print textiles that celebrate the landscape of North Devon and Exmoor where I live and work. 

I care deeply about choosing materials for my textiles that are fit for purpose, environmentally sustainable and have great longevity. Here in my shop you can find a small selection of my work.

I believe that low impact Procion MX dyes are the most environmentally sustainable synthetic textile dyes, and I now use these dyes for almost all of my textile printing, onto both furnishings and more recently scarves. These dyes contain no heavy metals or toxic substances, they have exceptionally high wash fastness and good light fastness, giving them great durability. They are classified by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 (an international certification process) as eco-friendly.

More of my drawings and colour inspiration sketchbooks can be found on my blog Planet Sam
