Fabric Finds: Ink & Spindle

There are times when I am writing for my blog that I feel a bit too.. effusive. I mean, how many times can I say, “I love this!” or “Isn’t this artist/creator/thing amazing?” But what can you do when there is just SO much amazing talent out there and accessible online (Ok, there I go again with the superlatives…)

But I have to do it again, because I am just so enamored by the work of the Melbourne-based textile designers at Ink & Spindle. First of all there is this antique key print, which I adore (predictably, since I have a tattoo of a similar motif on my arm). But then all the lovely modern, organic prints are really doing it for me. They are all hand printed and use sustainable inks and fibers.
