Hollyhock sprigs, in colorful full bloom, hand printed on each napkin in this set of four. Elegantly simple. Perfect for kitchen table dinners or fine dining special occasions. Printed one at a time, using my unique, hand painted, block printing method.
Maine artist Molly Thompson creates the designs of each of the napkins, towels and table linens. Her hand-printed linens are inspired by nature and by her verve for color and for functional objects representative of good design. Each linen is unique – individually printed using a process that begins with carving Molly’s original drawings onto a pliable rubber surface, which is then mounted on wood to create a stamp.
She hand paints the stamp repeatedly to create printed impressions that mirror gardens, both real and imagined. The fabrics I print on are made of natural fibers and the paints are food safe and heat set, to withstand rigorous use and repeated washing.
