Helen, one of our readers in the UK, got in touch this week to tell me about her visit to Digitata design studio in the Orkney Isles in Scotland.
Digitata is a small and ethical studio, where designer-maker Sarah Johnston prints her textile designs onto silks, irish linens, hemp, or has them made in jacquard weaves, and then uses them to make up small runs of homeware and fashion accessories.
Top L: Umbels on Irish linen
Top R: Leaves on silk douppion
Below: Jacquard weave cushions (now on sale!)

Love the kitchen-themed teatowels, also available as aprons.

I love this idea of selling printed fabric panels stretched on frames as wall art. This is from the Digitata Everything But the Kitchen Sink range.

So even if most of us can't manage a visit to the scenic and remote Orkneys, thanks to the internet, all this loveliness and more is available to you right here.
