Velveteen Prints: Brooklyn’s Newest Textile Design Studio

The fashion world is aglow with beautifully printed textiles this season and the trend forecasting that we’ve been catching is calling for patterns on the runways in the seasons to come.  From tribal inspired to the always-popular floral,and  from playful to sophisticated, prints are everywhere.  And we like it.


We were lucky enough to spend a few hours with Quinn Christie of Velveteen Prints, Brooklyn’s newest Textile Design Print Studio.

Having only opened for business in January 2011, it’s exciting to hear about the infant company’s quick path to success. We learned a lot. Interested in learning more about Velveteen Print’s services?  Here are a few key points:

    I have a collection of amazing and unique textile designs that come from digitalizing my original artwork. I dont know how to get them to people that could use them for clothing and/or homegoods. Thoughts?

      Hi Deb,

      Thanks for reaching out. Have you looked into participating in Print Source? It’s a great show, a lot of exposure. If that’s not an option, do you have a website up and running? What are your social media channels like?

    I just came across this and as a huge fan of prints, I am glad to learn about local print studios. BUT- check out They have downloadable hi-res and royalty-free textile designs! Personally I like them because i am on a budget and textiles from studios are expensive!
