To obtain the best reproduction of Emma’s designs on the fabric we use a digital printing process using Reactive Inks. This method gives a fantastic finish ensuring all the detail of Emma’s original hand carved elements are reproduced as close as possible.
Digital printing also gives an extremely high colour yield which allows the extensive EJ Linney colour pallet to be recreated to the closest possible match on the fabric.
Reactive Inks are the most commonly used for almost all types of home furnishings and upholstery.
These give an extremely high level of rub fastness, both dry and wet. However, they do not give a high level of colour fastness to natural sun light.
We recommend Reactive Inks for all home furnishing and upholstery use such as cushion covers, light upholstery, throws, curtains, drapes, blinds and so on. Please note that for curtains, drapes and blinds a backing fabric is required to protect against fading from direct sun light.
We have chosen to work/partner with an extremely experienced printer to ensure we can offer the best service and continuity of quality.
We provide information and advice on how to look after your textiles, with practical guidelines on how to care for your textiles.
At EJ Linney Designs we take our environmental responsibility very seriously and do everything we can to reduce our waste and keep our production clean.
We have chosen to work with one printing company to ensure we can offer the best service and continuity of quality.
After a year of vetting many companies and performing numerous test runs, we were delighted when we knew we had found the right printing partner, who has an enormous amount of experience over many decades and with the same level of passion for their business as we do for ours. We are looking forward to growing the EJ Linney brand together.
We only use Reactive and Pigment inks which conform to Oeko-tex standard 100, confirming they contain no harmful chemicals. All of the materials used in the production processes of the inks are synthetic and in no case are any animal products used.
We only use fabrics that come directly from the mill in Pakistan. The fabrics are currently 100% Cotton and we hope to be able to offer in early 2022 100% organic Cotton as well.
As part of the digital printing process, the fabrics are washed up to 70 degrees to remove any preparation solution and unfixed dyes. The waste water is then processed through an effluent plant and released back to public water treatment processing plants.
Everything we sell is bespoke and printed to order reducing the chance of building redundant stock which may eventually need to be disposed of.
