How a fabric is born: Studio Amanda Talley

Every one of our signature Amanda Talley fabrics is created using Amanda's original artwork.  The process begins with a high resolution digital image of one of her paintings or drawings.  The image is "snipped", and a portion is removed to begin creating the fabric pattern.  After the "snip" is removed, we use a computer program to arrange the snip in different ways, including tiled, scrolled, or mirrored images.  We spend a lot of time arranging and re-arranging until we come up with a scale and design that works for the particular project we're aiming for.  Once the pattern and scale are determined, we have a sample printed on several different fabrics and chat with the tailors in our workroom as to whether they will work well for interiors, bedding, clothing, or whatever other ideas we're experimenting with.  Once everyone gives it the green light we give the pattern a name and start production!  Enjoy our mini-movie and detailed photos of the process!
