Classic Textiles has been established to accurately recreate textile design classics of the 20th Century using state of the art digital printing technology. With the consent of the designer or estate, the designs are faithfully reproduced onto a linen union base and sold by the metre or developed into products. The collection was launched in 2003 with 12 designs by Lucienne Day and is being continually expanded.
The designs are digitally produced, and two of them are traditionally printed with Vat dye making them suitable for larger domestic or commercial applications. We also print with reactive dyes and pigment inks, and choose the most appropriate ‘print output’ for each design based on the end use.
