MIRTO

I'm very excited to present Mirto, the new homeware collection I have produced in collaboration with Made.

The artworks for the collection were created in my own style, which have been cropped into to create a bold and vibrant mood for Spring/ Summer '17. The textile range feature almost abstracted floral patterns and colour blocks on cushions and a rug, in this new collaboration with Made.com.

The collection has a tactile quality and a lush depth, mirroring the original artworks with it's presence of the hand made. The materials are strong and durable, using traditional printing screen printing methods, staying true to the essence of the original design. The artworks were initially cut in layers of paper, using scalpel and then rendered into appropriate media for screen-printing and tufting techniques.

'When we try new trends, we like to go for it. We wanted floral patterns for our cushions but not the small, quaint kind. We went large - courtesy of Swedish designer Petra Börner. Petra designed this collection with bold, abstract patterns - that’s her signature style. She created a floral pattern and zoomed right into it, so that every detail is magnified.' Made

Mirto is now available in store and online here.
