Who are you?
My name is Hannah Stevens, I’m a recent graduate from Nottingham Trent University, UK.
Where are you?
I design and print my products from my tiny spare bedroom studio in Nottingham, UK.
Why do you hand make your products?
I love the quality and finish that can be achieved through hand screen printing, as well as the feeling of achievement when I finish each product. Making each product by hand means that each one is different, perhaps the colour is slightly different, or the print is in a different place, this makes all my products unique in a way.
How long did it take to make?
My range of cushions take around 1 hour ish to make each, this includes hand screen printing each layer of colour, cutting the fabric to size, a lot of ironing, machine stitching and finally the finishing touch of a little wooden label hand sewn on.
What dreams do you have for your products?
My dream for my products would be to see my collection grow, to have a range of products catering for all kinds of homes and people. I would love to be able to create a print for upholstering vintage furniture! That would be fantastic!
Where would you like to see them?
I would love to see my products stocked in shops all over the UK and perhaps abroad if possible… I would also be thrilled to see my products showcased in magazines one day too!
