This year I have finally tried to get involved in a small production and test my designs as prints on silk and chiffon scarves. There is a printing house who specialise in textile printing in my hometown, and while being on Christmas vacation, I did some work with them. It was a very interesting experience and the result was quite satisfying 🙂 I was very curious to see how different patterns are going to look like on fabrics and printed 10 different patterns – 26 pieces in total. Many of my friends thought that those scarves were good presents for their loved ones or just for themselves, so I didn’t really have a chance to advertise them, before almost all the initial stock disappeared 🙂 I still have a few left, and the plan is to put then on etsy in the nearest future.
I guess you are curious to see how they came out. I was so excited when I got them, so I took a small video-presentation))
And then I also managed to take a few pictures of the ready products, before I parted with them 🙂 They are in the gallery below.
The last month I grew very fond of pattern making, so now I’m preparing a small batch of new samples, if everything goes fine, they will be printed next week. The edges are going to be handled a bit differently, which will make the scarfs about 20% more expensive, but I think/hope it will be worth it – will see soon.
I have a small logistics problem though, producing it in Russia is not so handy, when I live in Europe. So i guess I need to invest some time into researching online printing services, that can probably even ship to the end customer. If you know some – drop me a line – many-many thanks ^^
