“Daffs” intends to capture the flourishing nature of Springtime, as the season is often initiated by the blooming of daffodils. Rather than focus on the delicacy of blossoms, this print reflects the sudden, prosperous landscape of Spring through large-scale flora and a vivid palette.

Emily Kilham-Heeks is a textile print designer, who loves to experiment with process, scale, colour and composition through collage, to create expressive visuals for quirky outcomes. Her designs are mindfully considered, often influenced by biophilic principles, and the organic textures and forms found within nature. Emily’s practice utilises both hand and digital processes; creating visuals through gestural drawings, mono-printing, and experimentation of various media, digitally manipulated to create playful designs and textured screen prints.

Printing Positive Change
This T-shirt was hand printed by a vulnerable adult in recovery from homelessness and other complex circumstances. They received the “Real Living Wage” for their efforts and every penny from this shirt goes back into growing Printed By us.
This item is made from organic cotton grown on a GOTS certified organic cotton farm in India. Organic cotton is grown without use of harmful chemicals and pesticides and uses less water – kinder to people and planet.
This T-shirt was handmade in a factory powered by green renewable energy in India which has been approved by the Fair Wear Foundation - a non-profit who assess fair and proper working conditions wages and employment terms.
We salvage the cuttings from organic cotton textile production, shred them and turn them back into soft cotton fibres. We add fibres made from locally recycled plastic bottles to obtain the cotton and polyester blend. We spin the blended fibres into fine yarn to make fabrics.
