There is this great husband and wife team in Australia that has blossomed into Red Seed Studios. He designs, they print, and beautiful eco-friendly fabric panels and housewares are made. Sam Messina and Ellie Beck are the creators of Red Seed Studio which showcases a range of hand screen-printed eco-friendly textiles. I owe this find to the wonderful ladies of Ink & Spindle who met Ellie and Sam at the Stitches and Craft Show.
Sam and Ellie’s designs are influenced by family, nature, art and the environment around them. They aim to design and create things that capture the imagination and I believe they do. They are based out of Brisbane, Australia. Their commitment to the environment extends to their product line and fabric printing processes.
Red Seed Studio limited edition fabric panels are hand screen printed, by Ellie and Sam. They use only environmentally friendly, solvent free inks. The base cloth is a hemp/organic cotton blend available in white, natural, or stone. Designs are printed in lipstick red, jett black and faded moss. Fabric meterage is now available in the Red Seed Studio Shop. Red Seed Studio is happy to ship worldwide. They are still loading items to their shop, so if you don’t see what you are looking for send them an e-mail and they will help you out.
Ellie is a work-at-home mother of two. She shares her journeys of motherhood and entrepreneurship on her blog Petalplum. Ellie also takes beautiful photographs which she shares through Flickr.

Thank you Jackie for a beautiful write up about us. It’s so lovely to receive support from the community; and for our designs to be appreciated as much as our ethics and our eco-fabrics.
