Lumiere Art & Co


Australian textile brand Lumiere Art & Co has launched a new collection that has been both digitally printed and hand-dyed. Smaller items feature hand-dyed and block-printed fabrics, while more complex patterns on larger linens are created through digital print.  

Lumiere's designer Emma Cleine has been experimenting with an unusual ice-dyeing method. Fabric is covered in a pile of ice and dye is sprinkled over the top. As the ice melts, the dye reaches the fabric, resulting in unpredictable surface patterns.

Many small textile brands are exploring traditional hand-making methods to create more unique designs. For more examples, see the Stylus report Textile Craft California: The New Wave. Innovative dyeing methods are also becoming popular as explored in a previous Stylus report, Alternative Dyeing.
