A review of Australian fabric designers would not be complete without including Of Paper and Thread. Based in Fremantle, Western Australia, Paper and Thread is the creation of talented designer Danielle Smeets.
Of Paper and Thread designs are limited edition and are professionally screenprinted by hand in Western Australia, using solvent-free inks. Check out this new Citrus design in Coral on a fresh white linen/cotton basecloth (pictured). It's practically edible. I'd love a beach umbrella or tote in this fabric.
You can find Of Paper and Thread fabric at various Australian and NZ stockists, on Etsy and MadeIt (Australia). Check out the Of Paper And Thread Flickr photostream and blog for all the latest designs, and the Of Paper And Thread catalogue for past designs.
P.S. How cool that our fabulous Australian textile mavens are the "Aussie Fabric Mafia" on Danielle's blog!
P.P.S. If you are into vintage teatowels, Danielle has quite the collection which you can also find on her blog.
