The Journeyman was originally inspired by a Mediaeval tile depicting a knight on horseback. Kate has reimagined him as the travelling artisan, or ‘Journeyman’, as they were known in the Middle Ages, and added flora and fauna for interest – our artisan is flanked by oak leaves whilst birds soar overhead. Unusually, this fabric is designed to run horizontally and can be printed across the width or railroaded, depending on your requirements. It works well as a headboard, blind, drum lampshade or border, and will add a lovely sense of story-time adventure to a child’s room.
Designer's Sustainability pledge: "We are proud to be a British-made brand, with a passion for doing the right thing where we can. We are small but selective – from the very start of our journey we have carefully chosen our suppliers and manufacturers in order to minimise our impact on the environment and maximise the positive effect of our commitments to sustainability. Our printed fabrics are printed in England onto British-woven linen union. We print everything digitally using non-toxic water-based pigment inks, a process which has several environmental benefits over more traditional methods. Digital printing also enables us to print to order which massively reduces potential fabric waste. Any waste we do have we repurpose as fabric birds and padded coathangers. Our woven fabrics are woven for us using Flax in a vertical production Jacquard weaving mill in Suffolk. This means that the entire process, from design development, yarn dyeing and weaving to finished fabric can be followed through the factory." - Kate Medlicott
Larger volumes may incur a 4 week lead time as the fabric is printed to order.
