We carry on our ‘Meet the Maker’ series with a wonderful find; wonderful because their designs are so attractive! And wonderful because their printing techniques blew our minds.
Meet Caslon & Co., textile designers and print creators using antique printing blocks and a little Adana printing press. So much to love in that one sentence!
Andrew Rouse, creator and owner of Caslon, felt that it would be a shame to let old printing blocks become a thing of the past. Inspired by typography on old music hall or circus posters, he set about with his team to reinvent ways of using the old printing blocks.
Thus was born Caslon’s range of unique homeware fabrics and accessories. Caslon has come up with novel ways of using a single pattern to create new motifs for their textiles, and there is plenty to love. We’ve got a bit of a thing for their floor cushions (so versatile, such soft colours), and oven gloves (so sugary!).
Caslon recently launched their new Waves collection, which moves away from their earlier pastel, macaron-coloured items. Waves carries on their bold prints, using stronger, more striking colours.
We think it’s so clever how they’ve managed to turn even the humble doorstop into something so sleek and stylish!
We think Caslon are a winner. Do check them out and let us know what you think!
