About Us

We love our local landscapes and the stories they have to tell.

They are our inspiration as we conjure up all manner of screenprinted wares in our studio in the heart of historic, sea-salty Fremantle, Western Australia. All of our products are designed by us and printed by hand using traditional screenprinting techniques and high-quality, ethically sourced materials.

From our evocative tea towels (sometimes used to dry dishes, but more often hung on walls) to our tasty table linen, our distinctive t-shirts and our raffish storage sacks, we love producing wares that we hope will find a lasting place in your home.

So, if you are looking for a distinctive gift, a memento of your travels or a reward for your own good behaviour, we hope we can assist.

 

We are:

Chris McDonald and Claire Bradshaw, business and life partners, who began Blue Lawn Designs around 2012. Chris completed an apprenticeship in screenprinting in Melbourne many moons ago and worked for quite some time in the textiles industry, printing everything from t-shirts for rock bands to yardage for fine furnishings. He loves the richness of colour and texture that comes from applying liquid inks onto fabric and wood, so is very happy to be revisiting his old craft. Claire is an episodic artist who is happy to have rediscovered her creative mojo working in the Blue Lawn design department. She also works as a writer and editor.

P.S. The Blue Lawn Designs team think that traditional screenprinting is far superior to the newer digital methods and deserves to be enjoyed for a while yet. Just saying.
