Roseanna is an artist, photographer, illustrator, and musician from Barnsley, South Yorkshire. The success of her Yorkshireman design and seeing the response people had to other Yorkshire themed designs gave birth to the idea of my startup business, The Yorkshire Collective – a place not only to share my own artwork, but for other artists across Yorkshire to use as a platform to create and sell their own clothing and accessory collections and celebrate God’s Own County. The Yorkshire Collective has a new home at Printed By us.

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.
