Unique ties created with print and mixed media techniques by textile artist and designer maker Barbara Meynell.
My hand printed ties use mixed media for a layered effect. Each of my ties is unique, being hand coloured and printed. Acrylic fabric paint is applied over a transferred or coloured fabric crayon background. Sometimes a pattern is stencilled as above. The ties are colourfast and can be wiped over to clean, and steam-ironed. I work on crepe de chine or crepe satin ‘classic’ style ties measuring 140 cm in length and 10 cms at their widest point.
I can do custom orders for these ties, so if you don’t see what you are looking for in the shop, please contact me and I will paint in your chosen colours and type of fabric. (Habotai, satin or twill).
