Electra Eggleston prints are designed and refined in Nashville, Tennessee, beginning with hand painted, drawn or dyed artwork as our original source. Scale, repeat and color are digitally refined as much as possible before sampling fabric closely with our printers. Unlike traditional textile design, our selection of artwork is not textile driven; each step is uniquely experimental from artwork to fabric, and full of uncertainty until the very end. (Sometimes a piece of art may be beautiful on its own, and does not translate well onto fabric. Other times it takes on sublime form as a textile. We love these discoveries.)
Our digitally printed fabrics are produced in Monroe, North Carolina on100% Belgian linen, and in Glarus, Switzerland on 100% Irish linen. We print digitally as much as we can in order to minimize our impact on the environment while preserving the integrity of designs and fabrics, as it uses less ink than traditional printing.
All performance fabrics are hand screen printed in Switzerland in order to maintain optimal UV color fastness.
