Since 2017 I have been using acid dyes for the custom design of nylon textiles. The dyes are applied to the fabric using various techniques and when ready, the design is fixed at a high temperature using a steaming chimney that I designed and built for the purpose. The weight of the fabric used, the techniques employed, the time delay prior to steaming and the steaming process itself combine to develop unique artwork.
The custom dyed fabric has been used in the construction of inflatable surf mats; in this form the results are extraordinary. Other projects have have included design for hand-made bike packing gear, travel bags and cushions for commercial premises.
If you have a project in mind get in touch and we can explore the idea.
