The fabric of life, our second skin. The means by which we decorate, protect and express our unique personalities. Gabi was lucky enough to learn to sew as a child, so her relationship with cloth was one of inspiration and respect,recognising its potential early on, with her dolls acquiring new ill-fitting cloths frequently.
With a background in screen and block printing, the majority of Gabi Bolton's work for Original Little Bird work is now produced digitally, apart from some bespoke pieces. However most prints are designed in such a way that they that specifically incorporate some of the supposed aesthetic restrictions of older technologies to make the digital print less flawless and generic.
Original Little Bird Prints are designed in The Studio in Norfolk and printed in the UK ,in either Scotland or the Midlands. With the latest digital printing technology less power and water is required during the process and less chemical waste is produced compared to screen printing .Original Little Bird aims to use as much ethically sourced materials as possible.
