We find patterns everywhere around us. One place where you can’t go without some good ol’ pattern-making is fashion design. So what if you made a lovely pattern and you’d like to get it printed on textile? Meet our friends at Spoonflower!
Spoonflower is able to print any design you make with Repper. They have a variety of fabrics, including regular and organic cotton, linen-cotton and even exotics like bamboo-cotton. Prices range from 18 to 32 USD per yard (for metric-minded people: that’s about a square meter), with discount if you are the designer of the pattern.
Below is one of our own patterns printed on linen, looking pretty good. This test-print was made at the Textile Museum in Tilburg, NL.
We hope you feel inspired to use all those pretty patterns and turn them into haute-couture! Send us a photo with your patterned dress/shirt/pants and we will feature you on our blog.
Be sure to keep an eye on our blog, because there is more info & tips coming up for pattern-making fashion fans.
