I just found out about Laughing Bird, a company started by Freedom Wilson to produce contemporary handprinted Australian textiles. I love that Freedom has turned her charming drawings into homewares using solvent-free inks and natural fabrics. Who wouldn't be chuffed to bits to received one of her aprons or tea towels this holiday? You can purchase here.
All of the Laughing Bird products are screen printed at their Blue Mountains studio, where the calls of the native birds depicted in the illustrations echo in the background. Thanks, Freedom, for sharing your unique work!
On the Kiwi side of the Tasman, Ingrid Anderson is producing a nice range of screenprinted textiles with kiwis, tuis and other native flora and fauna. You can shop for Ingrid Anderson products online here, or at design stores throughout NZ. Images below from their website.
