Caroline Nixon: Eco-Printing and Upcycling from Warwickshire

“Eco-printing is the antithesis of today’s ‘throwaway’ society”

Specialised in eco-printing and natural colours, Caroline Nixon is a textile artist living and working in Warwickshire, UK. She uses botanical contact printing and natural dyeing combined with the shibori technique to create beautiful designs. Caroline usually upcycles and dyes the clothes and textiles that she finds in charity shops to make jackets, coats, dresses, t-shirts, shirts, and scarves.

Caroline also has a passion for producing very special and meaningful pieces. And so, she encourages her clients to come up with leaves from their own garden or with plants that have special memories for them. She can even print your wedding bouquet onto a camisole or silk kimono!
