Print Block is a collective of print makers based on Dublin's Cork street. Established in 2010, their aim is to raise the profile of printed textile design, develop the industry, and increase the reputation for Irish designed and printed textiles. This dynamic collective is releasing it's first signature range of hand screen-printed wool scarves under the brand name Print Block Makes. This collection presents a simple graphic style that showcases the fundamentals of textile print at its best. The fabric is a lightweight soft pure wool printed in a choice of vivid colours. Five unique designs are available by the following creatives, Aoife Challis; Ruth Doorley; Jennifer Phelan; Caroline Ryan; and Olga Tiernan. Each design is a limited edition of 50, and is hand printed and hand finished in their Dublin studio.
Print Block Makes will be available for sale from the 18th June at Irish Design Shop on Drury Street, Dublin 2. A launch event will be held on 17th June from 6.00 to 8.00pm, which is kindly sponsored by Jameson. This event also celebrates our beautiful new shopfront, which was designed with Steven McNamara, and constructed by Philip Murray. We hope many of our lovely customers can join us, all are welcome.
