Rapture & Wright

By Harris and Jones - WORKSHOP
Rapture & Wright
Peter Thwaites and Rebecca Aird founded Rapture & Wright in 2004, which now stands out as one of the UK's last handprint studios, preserving traditional craftsmanship in a modern world. Their approach cleverly merges age-old techniques with contemporary design sensibilities, catering to both modern and classic tastes.
With a commitment to quality and authenticity, Rapture & Wright showcases the beauty of handcrafted textiles in a way that resonates with those seeking unique and timeless pieces for their spaces. Each creation is a testament to their dedication to preserving heritage techniques while embracing innovation in design.
Their design process: 
  • Transparent films are utilised to replicate the final design. One screen for each colour of the pattern is used to "etch" it onto the printing screens using these films.
  • The inks are blended to match your custom colour swatch or their standard colour chart.
  • The base fabric that has not been printed is rolled out and ironed onto the print table in the interim. To ensure that every part of the design lines up when they print, the pattern repeats on the print table are carefully calibrated.
  • As the first colour dries, the screen is cleaned and printed in that colour. The following colours go through the same procedure again. After being rolled, the fabric is cut to the desired length.
  • Although small-scale production requires a lot of time—two persons could need a day to print thirty metres of fabric—the outcomes are exquisite and one-of-a-kind.
