Hi David, Thanks for your comment! At the moment I am busy trying to grow this business as well as set something else up. The factory we use is based in Egypt. They need patterns and designs as they do not do any design work in house. If you want to discuss this further please send email to email@example.com
Hi David - That is a great idea. I live in merino wool all year round. We who love wool are a small group and should stick together.
I checked out your website. What a great project.
Let me know your ideas for a wool group and how I can help.
Hey, My name is Holly Pressdee and I saw your friends pictures or tartan and he told me to get in contact with you - John Melvin.
I have just graduated from Chelsea College of art and studied textile design and specialised in weaving. my final collection involved tartan and looking into sustainable fashion and textiles organic yarns and natural dyes.
But im now looking to get more experience with the industry and wondered if you could give me any advice. I want to extend my design skills and learn more about the industry.
Hope to hear from you soon
Hi David - I think your project is fantastic and I will definintely be listing tartansforafrica on my website, www.bestfairtrade.com - it is still early days and am in the process of expanding the site to include a forum for both consumers and suppliers/manufacturers to have their say. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.... Best wishes, Leona
Hi David sorry for taking so long to respond to you.
I have just been chatting with the fashion lecturer in the college about you and the possibility of being involved with the Irish tartan in fashion for the event.
Her name is Lynda Byrne and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I would suggest that you contact her directly and explain how a joint project will work in terms of date and fabric sourcing and costs etc. as I said before im in the printed textile area so any joint project would have to involve printing. The weave are could be interested but it seems your main focus is the involvement of a fashion course.
How is it all going any way. Mention my name when you contact Lynda so she will immediately know about the project.
Many thanks for the info through the post. I am sorry for not getting in touch sooner, I went off toe Sweden for a conference on Human computer interaction. What fun hanging out with geeks and thinkers!. Hope to speak soon
Thanks for your message, I am definitely intersted in what you are doing and in a collaboration with you. Could yo send me a link to your web page or would you send me some images of your work, so that can show it to my team?
I have been working mainly with silk, wool, and other natural fabrics, with a focus on the drape and hand. I am currently researching smart fabrics with an emphasis on functionality, such as heat transfer, static and abrasion resistance, antimicrobial, and washability. I look forward to speaking with you! :)
