Hi, and welcome! My name is Blair and I am the founder and chief block carver here at b*spoke prints.
After many years working as an interior designer and design blogger I came to believe that fabrics were the best way to inject personality into both spaces and occasions. Which led me on the hunt to figure out how exactly I could make my own fabrics. When I discovered block printing I was a goner - I just love the slow process and the perfect imperfectness it brings to a textile design. Founded in the winter of 2016, B*Spoke prints is a product of five years spent fiddling with various types of blocks, carving tools and designs.
Each printed piece starts with a hand-carved block, which is hand painted by brush or roller and then printed on fabric to create the desired pattern. It is a labor of love. The result is something I am excited to be able to share - as each piece brings me great joy and hope it does to you too!
If you have any questions about a product, our process or how to commission a custom block printed design shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, if you live in the Bay Area you can find our pieces at the Friedeman Wines tasting room at the Barlow in Sebastapol.
