The linens are printed in my small studio on the shores of beautiful Moreton Bay in sunny Queensland, Australia. I use handcut stencils and non toxic water based fabric inks, and the prints are then heat sealed for permanence.

Welcome!

Simply stunning! These beautifully made runners take on a life of their own given clever use of white on linen. A show piece for any table setting. Proud to support Australian Made too.

Helen is a treasure and a delight to correspond with and was only to willing to get these mailed to me at such short notice. Sorry for delay in reviewing Helen but my dad's health has had me caught up for ages. Thank you for all your assistance and time involved in getting these items to me. Kind regards Glenn

About

Simple Design - Inspired by Nature

I first started screenprinting t shirts way back in the 1980s after I did a short course at the local TAFE in Townsville. I can still remember the thrill of lifting the screen to see my first creation - and I still have the screen I built as part of the course - I can't count how many beautiful designs it has helped me produce.
And my shop name?Paluma is a tiny village set in the tropical rainforest near Townsville, north Queensland - the location of our holiday cottage. The beautiful environment there provided lots of inspiration for my first prints. The name PalumaPrint just seemed right.
I have tried various forms of screenprinting including photographic, but I always gravitate back to printing with paper stencils which I handcut (and are fortunately re-usable). I love the simplicity of the process, the clear crisp results and the fact that I don't have to use any chemicals in the process. I also use water soluble non toxic fabric inks which are produced in Australia.
I do all parts of the process myself - the design, hand cutting the stencils and screenprinting the fabric using natural sustainable linen which I obtain from a local Queensland based small business. From time to time I also sew purses, bags and aprons from my fabric and have also dabbled in screen printed wall art.
One of the joys of selling on Etsy is being able to communicate directly with buyers, and I never tire of hearing the stories behind the purchases and receiving feedback from all over the world, sometimes with photos of the items in their new homes.

    I originally trained as a biologist and now am a textile designer/screenprinter. In between times I worked as a librarian. I am constantly inspired by the environment around me particularly the beautiful native Australian flora.
