CMYUK boosts its decor and fashion textile division
Susie, who has a degree in fashion marketing, is an experienced surface designer who has enjoyed a career immersed in textile design and printing. Prior to joining CMYUK, she worked for Macclesfield based RA Smart and Think Positive Print, a pioneering direct-to-fabric digital printing and textile design house, also based in Macclesfield.
She will work with sign and print companies that currently specialise in retail and corporate interiors to expand and broaden their portfolio offerings to include décor and design through textile production. Following their introduction to specialist fabrics, CMYUK customers will be able to produce unique upholstered digitally-printed coverings for furniture, plus bespoke designs for blinds, rugs, cushions and more, to create highly engaging and aesthetically ambitious multi-faceted interiors.
Susie will be working closely with CMYUK’s textile solutions team to support creative entrepreneurs, surface designers and small businesses in their embrace of the concept of Reshoring, the practice of turning textile and material design collections into printed products in-house for short-runs, one-offs, or web-to-print just-in-time output, thus helping them to establish new revenue streams for their portfolios.
“I’ve been really blown away by CMYUK,” enthused Susie. “It’s a very forward-thinking and innovative company and it’s exciting to be a part of a business that proactively looks to the future with new solutions. CMYUK is really conscious of its eco-credentials, something that is really important to me too, and something that I’ve been worried about for a long time in textiles. I’m delighted to be part of a company that has a future vision for change.”
Michael Crook, New Business Director at CMYUK said, “We are delighted to welcome Susie to the CMYUK team, as we expand and grow into new markets. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge in textile design and technology, along with experience in digital print production.
“As customers diversify and expand on their digital print capabilities, we see a strong move into digital textile printing to service markets such as interior design, fashion, and promotional branded products and we have a bold and extensive textile range that perfectly replicates the look and feel of traditional fabrics. Susie will be key in its delivery to market.”
