Molly Mahon started off by printing sheets of paper on her kitchen table, making small batches for shepherd’s huts and cloakrooms, but when her kitchen became more of a workshop she converted her garage into a studio for her designs and has her papers and fabrics printed commercially. Believing her house to be ‘perfectly imperfect’, she feels homes should be a colourful reflection of the people who live there. With children, dogs and various other pets she likes to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere for friends and family that is a home, not a showroom. Molly’s block print designs and vibrant colour palette are perfect for making beautiful, colourful, joyful spaces that will stand the test of time, the feet of children and the paws of animals.
Based in Sussex, Molly is inspired by nature, her travels to India and things that she notices in my daily life. She turns her images into repeat designs and both carves them into a blocks herself, as well as using artisan block makers in Jaipur where she works with two specialist businesses who print some of her fabrics using traditional techniques. 5% of her profits are plowed back into the local community health care system in Bagru where some of her fabrics are printed.
