What we do – hand-crafted textiles

BlueHanded create exclusively designed, fabric patterns made by artisans employing techniques passed down through generations, over many centuries.

Using the ancient resist printing method, we work in exclusive collaboration with our indigo Masters to develop each collection. Working with London-based artists, specially selected for their artistic endeavour and signature style, our fabrics uniquely reinterpret and revere the age-old art of indigo.

Create a striking scheme by combining fabrics, or savour individual prints as feature accents; for window treatments, home furnishings, upholstery and accessories. Whatever your choice, BlueHanded is a timeless collection to enjoy today and treasure for tomorrow.

Sex by Alex McKenzie

Sex is a collection of individual prints following in the tradition of textiles as a medium to tell stories

about human relationships, life’s fortunes and rituals through symbolism. ‘Birds and Bees’

explore themes relating to encounters between lovers and the interplay between

the positive and negative that makes connections with those we love both joyful and challenging.

The Birds and Bees combines imagery of swallows and honey bees artfully skirting around central

spines of brambles and apple branches bearing fruit. These visual references are emblematic of the

art of relationships and the careful negotiation required to maintain the equilibrium of both the

physical and emotional side of shared lives.

Co-ordinates

BlueHanded co-ordinates provides a range of prints that can be used on their own, together, or as an accent to our artist-designed collections. Curated by John Abbate, BlueHanded’s founder, these prints have been chosen for their versatility and rhythmical simplicity. Lattice lines is a geometric print that is at once both modern and traditional, eastern and western. The lines weaving together in a lattice format reflects the lattice-work that is so predominant in eastern furnishings and decorative arts both, historically and today. The diamond shaping through the peaks and troughs of inter-woven lines is reminiscent of art-deco styling which creates a beautiful, fresh feel to the design.

Curated by John Abbate, BlueHanded’s founder, these prints have been chosen for their versatility and rhythmical simplicity. Wonky lines follows in the convention of prints symbolising life-giving, but can also be seen as an extension of the idea of the flow of life - rain water dripping down a glass pane, traffic crawling along the streets of London at rush hour, or mammals migrating through the dessert. Create a striking scheme by combining fabrics, or savour individual prints as feature accents; for window treatments, home furnishings, upholstery and accessories.

Twelve by Alister Shapley

Twelve is a grid-based pattern inspired by the element of water. In a truly east meets west design.

Alister draws a parallel between the the indigo-infused water dripping down from the dyed cloth back

into the vat as it emerges during production, and the droplets of rain falling to disturb the surface of

puddles in the streets of London. Both provide a contemplative rhythm to a way of life. For the indigo

Master in China engaging with their artisan craft and for Alister, the print-artist going about his daily

business in London.
