All Safomasi prints are inspired by our travels around the world. It’s a long process. We travel and gather inspiration and ideas, before coming back to the studio and spending weeks (often months!) drawing prints and patterns that tell the story of our experience. In this series of posts we wanted to take you behind the scenes of our Tiger Safari Collection with an insight into the design process of the Spotted Deer print.
We last wrote about Iqrup + Ritz a long time ago, when we shot our Kawaii Collection at their showroom in Gurgaon. A year later we worked with them on a line of upholstery fabric. Two years later, after realising we somehow neglected to post at the time, we’re finally sharing images from the collaboration!
Tash Mok spent a month interning with us this April. Although she graduated in Textiles from Chelsea College of Art, she’s got a great body of Illustration work. Her observational drawings from her travels have their own style composed of loose inky brush strokes and sketchy pen and pencil marks. Whilst she was with us she worked on print compositions, as well as a series of drawings. Safomasi Studio illustrations by Tash Mok document our studio and making process. We love the character of the drawings and how brilliantly they capture behind the scenes in our studio!
