Lichen Speckle Shimmer Velvet Fabric


This design was created using an original hand screen print inspired by lichen.

Lichens are a complex life form that is a symbiotic partnership of two separate organisms, a fungus and an alga.

Due to the marbled effect of the fabric, it translates as a lighter overall colour when printed.

Sally Gilford creates bold, vibrant designs inspired by humans and nature.

She explores connections between art and science, creating distinctive responses to original images of scientific research provided by scientists from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Matrix Research at The University of Manchester. 

Her unique fabric designs incorporate both hand printed and digital processes and are printed onto velvet and cotton fabric in the UK.
