Designer Profile: Caslon&Co

victorian-flourish-printing-blocks

Caslon&Co are delighted to present their debut collection of textile patterns at Tent London 2013. The contemporary patterns are created using antique wooden printing blocks, which were traditionally used to add decorative flare to books and posters, before they fell out of fashion and became a thing of the past.

Caslon&Co was formed by surface pattern designer Andy Rouse which grew from his love of traditional printmaking techniques, having begun to create the patterns while experimenting with printing blocks in his studio.

The collection of three patterns launched in 2013 are available as a range of fabrics, soft furnishings and kitchen linens, which are currently stocked in a selection of popular stores, including Idyll Home, Roost Living and Paisley Cat as well as their online store.
