Ink and Spindle Eco-friendly Fabric and Yardage Printing
The designers behind Kirin & Co. (Lara Cameron) and Hollabee (Bianca van Meeuwen), along with friend Tegan Rose, have joined forces to create Ink & Spindle. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Ink & Spindle is a yardage screen printing business, with an environmentally friendly focus. Lara, Bianca, and Tegan are a powerhouse of designers each with their own unique style, yet somehow all of their prints go together. They share their journey with us through the Ink & Spindle Blog.
They offer prints on a variety of base cloths, including an organic cotton/hemp blend fabric. All designs are hand screen-printed with water-based, non-toxic inks in their brand new studio. The Ink & Spindle Shop has fabric by the meter, housewares, and craft kits. In addition to their own designer fabrics, Ink & Spindle offers custom screen printing for other designers (who aren’t up for screen printing their own fabric). With a studio in an old warehouse and a 10 meter yardage printing table they are well equipped to do custom prints.
