Cara Tomi Print Textiles…

 “Hello, I am Cara Tomi, owner of Cara Tomi Print Textiles, an emerging contemporary designer-maker who sees my designs through from the concept to the final textile production. I have a huge passion for pattern and colour. I love to work with lines and shapes that come together to structure the design or patterns on the surface of textiles, either as large repeats or singular elements. Everything on my stand is hand designed, drawn, crafted and brought to life by myself! All products are individually dyed and printed by hand, therefore the print may not be perfectly in form and no two products will be exactly the same, making them totally unique and bespoke items!”

I really enjoyed today at Hadleigh and I have got home and my online shop at etsy, has had loads of views plus sold a few more pieces to people who were there today.  So Cogs and Gems would like to thank you and can’t wait for your future event dates, thank you again.

I wanted to say how much I enjoyed doing the Lavenham craft fair.  I have to admit at first I was concerned that there might not be as much footfall upstairs, but it was virtually busy all day, plus I had an excellent spot in the centre of the room, so thank you!
