Our friends Isabelle and Nickolas Robertson needed a fabric press where Isabelle could create her hand-screened prints onto fabric. So Nickolas, an architect, made a printing press out of industrial cast-offs, helicopter bearings, and recycled American steel. They couldn't find the tools they needed when they started out, so they built them using photos of American printing equipment from the 1950s.
Isabelle does her silk screening by hand on this unique press, using Gen IV inks from International Coatings. The inks have been tested by Intertek Labs to be free of heavy metals, AZO colorants, formaldehyde, PVC and phthalates and are compliant with Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) limit values. The combination of our GOTS certified fabrics with their GOTS certified inks means exquisitely beautiful fabrics that are as safe as they are beautiful. In addition to superior durability and texture, the inks they use meet the highest standard for clean air and clean water manufacturing facilities, as well as ethical treatment of workers and that's all before it even gets to their studio. All their products are produced in Ballard, Seattle, USA.
Plus, we think the designs are pretty fabulous.
