Tara Davy Textiles

Partridge Chilli Hand Screen Printed on 100% Linen

This week we introduced a brand new Australian Designer range of textile designs to our store - Tara Davy Textiles!

Tara and I have had an online friendship for a number of years now and throughout this time have often discussed her designing a range of hand screen printed fabrics exclusively for Kelani. We have been working on this project for a number of months and it has been great fun being involved in choosing colourways, basecloths to print on and the most difficult part..deciding on which of Tara's gorgeous designs to run with first. Tara's background is one of design, design and yes, more design! Tara has spent years designing and illustrating in the magazine industry and in her words is "thrilled to apply her work to a new surface".

Tara's designs have a lovely touch of whimsy and a dose of bright retro and are printed with water based inks on a range of 100% linen, 100% cotton and Australian Made 100% Organic Jersey. We have a little bit of wonderful inspiration to share with you below, illustrating Tara Davy Textiles made into cushions, lamps, bedding, wall art and of course clothing but we are really looking forward most to see what some of our customers make with this range.

The 100% organic australian jersey is incredibly soft and will make lovely cozy jackets like the make it perfect uptown girl jacket above or pj'sdresses and tops below. Other ideas for the organic jersey is tees, onesies, bibs, baby wraps as well as bedding. The 'Partridge' design is also available in jersey in two beautiful colourways, chilli and chai latte.
