byhandlondon Guys, we need your help! We're at the delightful stage of picking fabrics for our printing service and wondered what your thoughts were about sewing with a woven bamboo? We want all the gory details, please! 2d
  •   chickenbootsusa I love the idea of bamboo!! Especially wovens. My only hesitance is if they are a fake 'green' fiber. Do they take so much processing that it's too harsh of a method to make it? 2d
  •   synerror Bamboo sounds nice. Me personally would love a hemp/hempmixfabric (mixes with cotton, bamboo or rayon. Its strong, feels good and are very kind to nature. medium/lightweight woven fabric something. To be able to design and print on silk would feel superduper luxurious too 2d
  •   bouquetbuttons Hmmm just make sure it's really ecofriendly, it would be sad if you, by accident, support green washing 2d
  •   jodietip I don't think I've encountered bamboo fabric yet but I love my bamboo knitting needles and chopping boards :) 2d
  •   hamsterandthebee The hand is amazing, but despite the claims, bamboo is not environmentally friendly. Though is is a rapidly renewable resource, it is manufactured like rayon, by chemically converting cellulose (plant material) into a viscous solution, and extruding it as you would a synthetic fiber, then returning it to 100% cellulose through more chemicals. Sorry to nerd-out! 1d
  •   sabine_catbydesign I have bamboo fabric that's the softest thing I ever came across, highly recommand it! 1d
  •   greysfabric LOVE BAMBOO 1d
  •   jennydegenhardt I'd say it's worth thoroughly researching - while I share hamsterandthebee's reservations, just because something is a chemical process doesn't necessarily mean it's not environmentally friendly as, after all, everything's chemical. But take your time and get this right, I think it's clear we want genuinely green goodies please! 1d

byhandlondon This week we're moving to our new studio!!! While it probably won't be as fly as this dream of a sewing space at @elizsuzann, it's definitely a massive source of inspiration. What's your dream studio like? Tag us in your favourite studio interior pics and send some inspiration our way! x 1mon

  •   jennydegenhardt Can you use your fans to direct that heat at us in the north east? We were having a heat wave, but it seems to have left us for the bright lights of the city! 1mon
