Introduction
I have been designing my hand dyed and hand printed fabric lengths using a range of fabrics and multiple surface design techniques. As a professional senior graphic designer/illustrator in a previous career, I have always had an interest in creating imagery, prints, illustrations, posters and publications using digital processes. This interest has led me to some fascinating explorations in the field of digitally created fabrics and textiles. This post focusses on my new digitally designed fabric collection - "Byzantine Glow".

There is no minimum order and the printed fabrics range from a test swatch (8" x 8" or 20 cm x 20 cm) to a fat quarter (21" x 18" or 53 cm x 46 cm) or to whatever your yardage requirements may be.

These fabric designs can be used for wearable art, accessories, furnishing and interior design projects. If you would like to purchase fabric lengths from my "Byzantine Glow" collection please email me for pricing and/or any other information at Marie-Therese.


"Byzantine Glow" - A New Collection of Digitally Designed Fabrics
The "Byzantine Glow" collection of digitally designed fabrics have been based on a series of my personal limited edition prints which employ my signature MultiSperse Dye Sublimation (MSDS) technique. The fabrics have been designed to give the illusion of an aesthetic ‘glow’ and mirror the changing seasons in sumptuous, rich colour ! Additional digital techniques have been employed to create imagery that contains depth and a luminous quality to the textile designs. The design features evoke a rich, decorative and structured Byzantine aesthetic.

The colors have been sensitively and painstakingly manipulated to create a superb complimentary colorways suite. The stunning designs can be used for interior design, clothing items and other decorative purposes. There are four colorways in the "Byzantine Glow" collection that are available for purchase.

The printed designs are available in the following natural fibres from Spoonflower - basic cotton ultra, Kona® cotton ultra, cotton poplin ultra, light weight cotton twill, cotton spandex jersey, linen cotton canvas ultra, organic cotton knit ultra, organic cotton sateen ultra, heavy cotton twill and silky crepe de chine. The printed designs are also available in the following Spoonflower polyester range of fabrics - satin, performance pique, poly crepe de chine, silky faille, performance knit, modern jersey, fleece, minky, sport lycra, eco canvas and faux suede. Fabric widths vary from 40" (102 cm), 42" (107 cm), 54" (137 cm), 56" (142 cm), and 58" (147 cm) depending on the chosen fabric. The designs are also available to use as self-adhesive wallpaper and giftwrap paper. See Spoonflower for more information.

My "Byzantine Glow" collection - for wearable art, accessories, interior and other decorative design projects - is shown below. Each work in the collection below shows a fat quarter (21" x 18" or 53 x 46 cm) view of the printed fabric design and a one yard length (36" or 91.5 cm) view of the printed fabric design.
