Yamka screen printed cushions, and lampshades handcrafted in England using organic fabrics.
Inspired by nature & kind to the environment
Our process always starts with inspiration from nature. From here we sketch to capture the essence of what we see and from there our designs are turned into screens ready to be printed onto fabric.
The designs are carefully thought out to ensure that each design compliments each other but also stands alone as a great piece. This allows our customers to either purchase one that they like or build-up an equally stunning collection.
We believe in layering of patterns subtly to show the essence of nature whether it is through the drawing, colour or texture of the fabric and all of these elements are integral to each piece we create.
At the heart of Yamka is our passion for screen printing and we use this traditional method for all of our printed fabrics. We love this hands on approach and feel it creates a clarity & texture in the designs that you struggle to achieve with digital printing.
The ink we use is water based and 100% solvent free so it is environmentally friendly which is really important to us.
Screen printing has been proven to be great quality for printing as the ink is heat set into the fabric making it not only durable but also vibrant in colour.
We source ethical organic fabrics from businesses within the UK. Not only do we love the idea of supporting other UK businesses, but we also feel that they provide the extra care and attention we require when sourcing good quality material for our homeware products.
We look for strong and durable fabrics such as linen & organic cotton that will continue to look great and stand the test of time, even after many washes.
We continually seek to reduce our impact on the environment by way of the materials we use and the way we make our products but the most important aspect of our reduced impact is that we design for longevity. That way you can enjoy our products for longer!
