Ink and Spindle
Ink and Spindle are far far away from me here in the UK, and the majority of our readers, who reside in the USA - but my goodness their work speaks to me directly.
The Melbourne company is the work of two designers, Lara Cameron & Tegan Rose, who print everything by hand. I am especially impressed with their "Pirates and Sea creatures" print (above), which is available on a onesie (AUS $49.00), blanket or just fabric.
The inks are solvent-free and the fabric is organic, so maybe that can go some way towards offseting the carbon miles, if you're ordering from this side of the world.
This is a charming idea, too - Ink and Spindle will send you all the material you need to sew up a quilt for your little one: eight of their prints, and a plain border fabric too. $145 Aussie dollars, which are at the time of writing very close to the US dollar in value.
