Love this whimsical Floral!
“We like to feel like we have a museum atmosphere in our showrooms, but with a difference. My paintings don’t just hang there. They were created to share and live with.”
This is the end of our behind the scenes at The Vera Companies from the 1970s! Hope you have enjoyed it!
“There’s even an art to the cutting of the fabric. Cutting marks are placed on the fabric to guide our cutters in following every detail of our ‘panel’ prints.”
“Finally, my painting comes to life as dyes are poured onto the silk screens. Each screen adds another color to the design, recapturing the colors in my original.”
“We select the right colors from our library of thousands of shades. Every color is created in our own laboratory for fabrics from silk to cotton to blends.”
“We prepare a paper visualization or ‘mockup.’ The painting is adapted with proper placement of print for collar, front, back. We call this our ‘panel’ print.”
“My sketches are turned over to my design staff. Each sketch is separated into various colors to prepare for our silk screen process.”
