Using sustainably sourced plant dyes and pigments, Madder Cutch & Co’s unique textile designs are hand screen-printed on the finest linen.
A chemistry teacher with a lifelong love of textiles, Nicola left the classroom to follow a childhood dream of going to Art College.
Triggered by a strong desire to redress the careless use of synthetic dyes worldwide, she completed an MA with distinction in sustainable textile design at Chelsea College of Art and Design. She has established her own natural dye print pastes to overcome the usual problems associated with natural plant dyes.
Inspiration from her surroundings and a love to draw, Nicola turns her sketches into flowing repeats and screen-prints them by hand in her garden studio. She established her company Madder Cutch & Co. in 2016 and with it the revival of natures colour palette has begun.
