Vibrant geometric artisanal textiles from Melbourne, Australia
Annie Coop's broad fabric collection showcases bold colour compositions alongside textural and modern geometric styles. Imbued with a vibrant spirit, the designs are equal parts sophisticated and playful with an uncompromising approach to quality.
The studio's design, production and manufacture are conducted completely in Melbourne, Australia. The studio uses a direct digital printing process using water based pigment ink directly onto fabric which is bonded by heat and pressure to the fibre. Unlike many other forms of textile printing, with pigment ink we utilise no water and have no waste ink during the printing process. This type of digital printing also reduces wastage on excess fabric as concepts and designs are tested in small volumes as opposed to mass production. Annie Coop works with local business accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia which means the studio's entire Australian supply chain has been audited and compliance checked to make sure all obligations to workers are being met from a financial and wellbeing perspective.
Where possible the studio does not support single use plastic and acknowledge that while they use plastics for shipping they do this mindfully.
