Imprinting traditional patterns

  • • Theresa uses traditional wooden blocks
  • • She loves the feeling of fabric in her hands
  • • She experiments with Austrian folklore symbology

Theresa has never been afraid of discovering new fields of art. After graduating from art college, she studied fashion design in Vienna where she focused on the development of her stitching technique. It was not the technique itself that fascinated her, but the unlimited possibilities of combining colours. Teresa loves to experiment. She plays with compositions, patterns, and colours. Her patterns are exemplary pieces of art in themselves. She creates them using the so-called Holzmodeln, whose patterns are reinterpreted and reflected on natural fabrics. These wonderful old wooden models keep alive the traditions of Austrian folklore, and new patterns and experiments open up new possibilities which are visible in her works. Teresa’s prints are made with a gentle touch and with great attention to detail.

Foto shirt

This loose fit shirt, hand printed with pink patterns upon a white background, is made from batist, one of the thinnest cottons on the planet. This makes the material hard to print on it. Theresa Schöffel's collections intend to highlight individual charm and stand for lightness as well as carefree joie-de-vivre.

Pareo

This pareo, a Polynesian word for a wraparound skirt, features light blue patterns that were hand printed onto a contrasting white background. The pareo is made from batist, a cotton fabric that is particularly difficult to print on. The pareo can be wrapped around you and is perfect to wear over a bikini.
