The amazing versatility of WeaveUp
If you are based in the United States of America and haven’t discovered WeaveUp yet I highly recommend that you take a look. There are many sites on the web where you can order custom printed fabrics, but I have never found another that is quite like WeaveUp. The most unique thing about it is the editing feature. You can fully customise a design to suit your needs, resize, recolour and create your own collections of matching patterns. Yes, that’s right, you can use your own palette (up to 12 colours) and create your own colour ways of almost any design for sale on the site and save it in your own collection.
As a designer it means that I can upload a design and customers can edit it themselves. They can try out different colour palettes and combinations until they are happy and order the fabric they need at the size they want for their project.
Design Boards. I love organising my designs in collections and in WeaveUp I can do just that, public or hidden, it’s up to you. Mix and match with designs from different artists or just your own. Awesome!
Smooth collaborations. You can create hidden boards and share them with clients via email and they can order fabric exclusive to them from WeaveUp’s extensive offering of fabrics.
Apart from anything else it’s great fun to create new and sometimes very unexpected colour combinations! If you are a crafter, Etsy creative or small business owner I highly recommend that you check it out. It may revolutionise how you source your materials.
The design featured here is my Happy Ditsy Paisley, why don’t you pop over to WeaveUp and have a play with it. I would love to see what palette variations you can come up with!
