About

Print / Pattern / Process / Colour

Laura Spring, originally from Staffordshire, is a textile designer/maker living and working in Glasgow creating bold graphic print designs that are transformed through screen and digital print into fashion accessories, homeware and stationery. She is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art where she was awarded a BA in graphic design in 2002. Always preferring to ‘make’, Laura began working in various costume departments within the theatre and film industry after graduation. However in late 2011 after a summer craft residency at Cove Park, Scotland, Laura established her own eponymous label and print studio in the heart of Glasgow and took her first collection to London to exhibit as part of Charlotte Abraham’s ‘Spotted’ showcase at Top Drawer.

With an enormous love for colour, print, pattern and process, Laura aims to create products and designs based around these ideals. Bold patterns mixed with bright colours transformed into beautifully crafted products underpin Laura’s work. Inspiration changes from collection to collection but past work has centred around the relationship between motif and function and most recently, Nature’s Camouflage.

Here at Laura Spring we believe in keeping 100% of our production within the UK and we take great care to ensure all our products are manufactured to the highest standards.

Our screen printed products are hand printed in-house at our Glasgow based studio using the finest raw materials. Based in an old sawmill, our studio is home to a diverse range of creative people and we love working from here. We print the fabric by hand on our traditional printing table using water-based inks that cure here in the studio.

In addition to working on her own collections, Laura enjoys collaborating with other artists/designers and companies across various fields. She has worked with artists Laura Aldridge and Ciara Phillips to produce limited edition ranges of bags for House of Voltaire 2012 and 2014 respectively. She has also produced limited editions for Lush Cosmetics, Belle & Sebastian, The National Trust for Scotland, Not Another Bill and is currently working on an exciting project called India Street, curated by Katy West. This took Laura and three other Scottish-based designers on a two-week research trip to India in February 2015 to develop designs and prototypes for the next phase of the project inspired by the Turkey Red Archive in Edinburgh’s National Museum. This is due to launch at Tramway in Glasgow in June 2016.

Laura exhibits at trade shows regularly both here in the UK and internationally and has her work stocked in a small selection of shops and galleries throughout the world.

We're always interested to hear from new stockists or about new projects or collaborations, so please email us on: hello [!at] lauraspring.co.uk

Thank you!

Welcome to Laura Spring Textiles. Here at Laura Spring we believe in keeping 100% of our production within the UK and we take great care to ensure all our products are manufactured to the highest standards.

Our screen printed products are hand printed in-house at our Glasgow based studio using the finest raw materials. Based in an old sawmill, our studio is home to a diverse range of creative people and we love working from here. We print the fabric by hand on our traditional printing table using water-based inks that cure here in the studio.

Our digital range of products are also printed in Glasgow, just down the road in fact, which makes production very easy to deal with.

We are also delighted to keep our manufacturing local and work with a small family business just outside Glasgow to produce the bulk of our collections. They have a wealth of knowledge and expertise of the textiles and manufacturing industry and create our products to the highest standard for us taking great care and using their excellent eye for detail.

Limited edition products and hand-finishing of some products takes place in the studio using our talented machinists to ensure all our products are made to the highest standard before we ship them to you.
