29D7F6BBA4B32704637B81E0D5EB81D3My name is Jonna Saarinen and I am a Finnish born textile designer and screen printer working in London, UK. This year I wanted to prepare something different to wrap my Christmas gifts in, rather than the traditional paper that just gets ripped off and never used again.

I have been using Permaset and Permatone inks for years now to screen print my textiles, and though a fun way of brightening up my work would be adding some Xmas glitz with the Permaset Aqua Gold Lustre.

245FE3DDC76CDBB60A219884F66DDC7BI printed my design on a high quality 100% linen tea towel first with a happy minty green and then the second layer in Gold Lustre, rather than Glow Pink that I normally use. After heat curing the tea towels and giving them a good steam iron to make them nice and neat, they were image1_storeready to go, and now my nearest and dearest will receive their gifts in style (with an added Xmas tea towel thrown in as a bonus)!
