  • Beautiful fabrics, hand-made with love and care for the environment

    At Madder Cutch & Co. we create beautifully designed fabrics that are printed using sustainably sourced plant dyes and pigments. Our original designs are hand screen-printed on 100 % linen that is woven for us in Scotland.

     

    A little bit about Madder Cutch & Co founder, Nicola

    A chemistry teacher with a lifelong love of textiles, Nicola Cliffe 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.

    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.

    The delicate flowers of Achillea millefolium that grow in the garden every summer have led to her first collection.

     

    The dyes we use

    Made from plant extracts woad, madder, cutch, weld and pigments such as charcoal we use the latest, most environmentally friendly methods, to show off our colours at their beautiful best. These colours have been used since antiquity and have a long and interesting history.

    “It took considerable time to produce the colours for my first collection but we had a great deal of fun coming up with their names. Which have been inspired by my home surroundings of Stamford, Lincolnshire – a beautiful Georgian town where I live and have my studio.”
