Part of Rosanna’s aim as a Printed Textile Designer is to celebrate the beauty in slow and thoughtful processes such as hand illustrations, hand dyeing and screen-printing; not only in aid of preserving these crafts, but also in a reaction against fast fashion and disposable design. Taking the time to design and create considered pieces hopes to promote a deeper appreciation for the textile and therefore a longevity in its beauty and enjoyment for the consumer, not only is this more sustainable but it also celebrates the brilliance of true craftsmanship.
