behind the scenes: The After School Club Studio
The philosophy behind The After School Club is to rebel against the mainstream and rather than be led by trends, we endeavour to create designs which are both unique and timeless. We aim to produce products, which have longevity in both construction and design, which are built to last.
One of the ways we do this is to illustrate and make all our prints and products by hand in house.
Our Exotic Fruit prints were hand painted with watercolour before being digitally printed onto high quality natural cotton sateen. The printing methods used enable every colour and brushstroke to be accurately captured, enhancing the characteristic feel of the hand painted design.
Our fabric is printed in the Uk using environmentally friendly inks and our luxury cushions are lovingly hand made in our Cotswolds studio. We are very proud of our British heritage and ensure we source all of our materials within the Uk. Sustainable practice is at the forefront of our business and something we ensure across all aspects of development and production wherever possible.
Our distinctive and quirky printed textiles offer a quick and easy way to inject colour and texture into your home and interiors, we hope you like them!
