Prints By Nature is the organic homeware and accessories label of textile designer, block printer and natural dyer Zoe Evans. Based in South Wales, her sole aim is to produce sustainable and affordable products that have minimal impact on the environment. Using traditional printing and dyeing methods such as solar printing, lino block printing, as well as various natural dying techniques that utilise locally foraged and sustainably sourced indigo dye Prints By nature makes a variety of products that encourage an eco-friendly lifestyle whilst expressing a little creative character.
Zoe has developed her practice in using traditional resist dying techniques including shibori and starch resist methods as well as incorporating her experience in traditional photography printing methods to produce exclusive sun print collections. All of Prints By Natures methods are produced with a love for nature and each item has been handmade with nature at the core of the process; from the oxygenation of indigo dying, the use of UV in sun printing to the locally foraged or grown dye-stuff to the botanically inspired block prints Zoe has hand carved and designed.
At Prints By Nature we are proud to say all of our textiles are sustainably sourced from GOTS Certified organic farms in Turkey and India that focus on the development of surrounding land and support the families in line with fair trade policies.
Each product has been designed and handmade to provide a hard-wearing and stylish alternative that aids the transition from high impact products/excessive habits to one of true sustainability, meaning you can shop knowing your choice is supporting both local creatives as well as small independent organic farms whilst ultimately being more earth-kind.
