Industrial Printed Textiles
Katie Brown is a specialist in printed textiles. Inspired by the urban, industrial landscape, she transforms images of swirling barbed wire and skeletal cranes into delicately illustrated patterns. Subtle colour palettes and soft, natural fabrics also combine to disguise the original hard-edged imagery and create an interesting yet beautiful textile.
Katie studied an Honours degree in Textile Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. She also participated in an International Exchange Programme to Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto where she studied Material Art and Design (Fibre) for a semester. In recent years, Katie was a participant on Craft Northern Ireland's prestigious 'making it' programme from which her business has stemmed.
Each print starts life as Katie's original drawings and photography in the studio at Seacourt Print Workshop in Bangor, Northern Ireland. The current collection stems from imagery of Belfast's shipyards, where the industrial shoreline in the East of the city is reflected into the water. These sources are then used to screen print and hand paint textile pieces as the patterns and designs are developed. Eventually all these aspects are put into a digital design programme and Katie creates the final digital design. The files are printed onto high-quality, natural fabrics at state of the art facilities in the UK. They are then returned to Belfast for finishing by a talented team of local seamstresses. Katie Brown Designs offer a range of silk scarves and cushions, as well as interior fabric per metre. Luxury finishing is paramount to our products. Scarves feature a hand-rolled hem to give the perfect drape when worn. Katie Brown cushions are backed with 100% Irish linen and include a luxury feather filler.
Katie Brown also offers bespoke design requests.
Katie Brown is a printed textile designer from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She continues to be based here, working from her studio at Seacourt Print Workshop, Bangor.
