Screen-Printed Textiles from a Beachside Studio in Sydney

Julie Carlson July 23, 2013

Founded by UK-born Julie Paterson in 1995, Cloth Fabric is a Sydney-based maker of screen-printed textiles. Paterson prototypes and develops all the designs in her beachside workshop in Sydney, basing her patterns on drawings and paintings inspired by the local landscape.

All fabrics are produced in short runs, by hand, in a tin shed in Country NSW; this small batch production method assures that the resulting cloth maintains its distinctive character. Visit Cloth Fabric for ordering information.

Above: The Barefoot Berry Stripe Fabric is made from hand loomed cotton in small workshops in rural Sri Lanka by the Barefoot organization. The company employs mainly women dyers, weavers, and needle workers in independent centers around the country. Manufacturing happens on a smaller scale that the women prefer to work at; $77 AUD for a 137cm-wide cut.
