Inspiring your hoME.

 

Traces of Me uniqueness is built around the originality of its exclusive signature prints. The designs reflect Teresa Martins's creative soul and are developed with her team of fashion designers so you can merge into an unparalleled world of creativity and multiculturality.

 

The beautiful prints of this year's cushions are from our fashion S21 collection. It's an extraordinary artistic alliance between two brilliant and gifted women: our creative director, Teresa Martins, and Lourdes Castro, a Portuguese artist from Funchal, Madeira. After specializing in abstract art in the 1960s, she created collages and silkscreens to capture ephemeral reality.

 

You can find the result of this harmonious collaboration in every detail of our S21 collection, from the pattern mix to the study of color and signature print—a truly awe- inspiring work.

 

But inspiration is just the first step, and at Traces of Me, we are all about the details, so the printing process is extremely important. Without the proper knowledge and best environmental practices, from selecting the best fabrics to handle them to absorb perfectly our designs' palette, we could never achieve the quality you deserve.

Digital printing on linen

The entire world is going after digitalization prints, and there is no doubt that digital printing on linen materials is on the rise too.

 

Linen has beneficial properties – it’s well-absorbing moisture and drying quickly. Linen fiber is robust and long, and it gives linen a good wear resistance. Natural Linen properties perfectly meet requirements for interior textiles – it’s getting softer with every washing and very resistant to mechanical.

 

Digital fabric printing is a relatively new technology with tons of applications, especially if you design your exclusive patterns to produce the most exquisite fabrics as we do at Traces of Me.

 

Design Process – How it works within our company?

 

Designs can be created digitally with almost any graphic design. Alternatively, existing artwork or photographs can be scanned and then digitally manipulated to make a pattern. Usually, designs are created as a seamless pattern that is repeated across the fabric process. Below there are some examples of our new stunning linen cushion collection and how it has become alive, from the pattern design to the finished product.

 

 

 

Possibilities of digital printing

 

Personalization


Every yard you print can be completely customized and personalized, which allows our creativity to go over the limit and results in vibrant and gorgeous patterns.

 

Lean, Just in Time styles


Small runs of fabric can easily be printed for sampling purposes. At Traces of Me we design all our fabrics, so this is a significant advantage for our creative process.

 

Time management


With digital printing, it’s possible to go from the design stage to finished fabric in a matter of weeks (or days).

 

Above all, these possibilities mainly focused on our work. We care for the environment. We rely on digital printing, which is customizable, uses less ink, helps to minimize wastage and doesn’t generate much chemical wastage as well, to protect our beautiful planet.
