Visualmyth Fabric is now OPEN

I am happy to invite you to look at the current results of a creative collaboration with my friend Ron Huden, together we have formed Visualmyth Fabric. Our designs are for sale via Spoonflower, you can choose the type of fabric for the image to be printed on, and the amount of yards you want. The quality of the printing is excellent, Spoonflower produces and ships the fabric (worldwide) and handles the transaction as well. They print with waterbased inks using a digital printer so the images have a unique quality to them. The fabric is washable. Suitable for clothing and wall art, and many other ideas. We hope you enjoy seeing the designs and wearing them as well. Visit our website for updates and a video that celebrates the inspiration of fabric design as cultural communication over eons of time.
