This quilt by London textile artist Louisa Loakes has been hand-block printed. A design is carved into a block of wood or linoleum, dye is applied and then pressed into the fabric. This process is repeated to create a pattern after which Louisa adds hand painted details to give each piece its own unique character. Made from linen with blue striped detail.
Material: Linen, Cotton.
Dimensions: Height: 200cm, Width: 145cm, Depth: 1cm
Care Instructions: Cold hand wash or dry clean.
Linen fabric is the canvas of Louisa’s work, with each block print twisting and turning to make simple geometric patterns, finished with hand-painted details. There is a freedom and simplicity to her work. Each run of fabric is unique.
