Katherine Morris - Hubbard and Reenie

The designer:
I grew up in a small hamlet in rural Shropshire. My school holidays involved making dens in old pig styes, mixing witches brew in drain covers (secret family recipe) and collecting flowers and leaves to press with my mum.

I used to desperately want to help to decorate and saved my pocket money to buy chiffon and lamps made of shells. From as early as I can remember I have had a distinctive love for old ‘tat’, scouring charity shops and auctions with my dad for that perfect yellow teapot: see Anemone Stripe!

I have always loved to draw, admire, and use my imagination. Hubbard and Reenie was born through my love of decoration, drawing and tendency to wonder about things.

The Environment:
All paper used is PEFC certified from sustainable forests. Check out their website to see all the information: http://www.pefc.co.uk/.

The Environment is very important to us so the wallpaper printers also have an Environmental Management System in line with ISO 14001 and have embraced The Environmental Protection Act 1990, The Pollution Prevention and Control (England and Wales) Regulations 2000, The Solvent Emissions (England and Wales) Regulations 2004 and The Pollution Prevention Control Act 1999.
 
The Printing:
I think that supporting British industry is very important so all products are made in the UK.

I have used a mixture of printing techniques in each design from the most traditional: surface print, to the more modern; flexographic. Each type of print was carefully researched to best portray the design. Subtle texture and familiar traditional ''hand printed' style textures were used in 'On A Wire' achieved by surface print and glitter detail and strong pigment saturation was used in 'The Street' by rotary screen print. For Teasels and Anemone Stripe Flexographic printing was used to best show off the finer detail.

To appreciate the subtle detail of the printing try ordering a sample.
