Zippi, print on demand in the UK

Dark blue art nouveau clematis pattern close-up
Having recently joined Zippi, a UK print on demand company, as a designer, I was pleased to see two sales - one for an iphone skin and one for a tote bag. Let's hope it's the start of bigger things!

The tote bag design is one I redrew from a vintage illustration, in vector format which makes it easy to change colours. The design is a stylised clematis with twining leaves and flowers with parallel border lines, made into a pattern. This one is a square pattern with a dark blue background and lighter blue leaves with orange brown flowers.

The totes are made from recycled material and measure 41cm x 37cm, and printed on both sides.

This design is also available on messenger bags, phone and laptop skins and cases, mugs, mousemats, coasters and placemats, keyrings, t-shirts, canvasses and even jigsaws.

Zippi's products are made in their Southampton base in the UK, which make them ideal for European delivery, though their worldwide shipping costs are also very reasonable.

This design is available in four other colours at present: Light green with orange brown flowers, light beige with blue flowers, dark brown with violet flowers, and dark green with violet flowers.

Art of Where

As part of my branching out exercise I've signed up with ArtofWhere, a Canadian company. I just wish I was a bit younger as I'd love some of their dresses, but they've still got cushions and scarves, leggings, and phone cases. The upload systems is a bit time consuming as you have to upload an image for each range of products, and they can be quite large files. They do two styles of dresses - flare and bodycon (which is a figure hugging style).
This is a design of indigo blue shaded stripes in a diagonal flowing pattern on the flare style dress. Just my colour! You can see all my designs here
