Charley Harper, acclaimed mid-century modern illustrator created bird and animal illustrations that are so timeless in their minimalism that they are as fresh and new today as when he first created them nearly 70 years ago.
In a style he called "minimal realism," Charley Harper captures the essence of his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements. When asked to describe his unique visual style, Charley responded:
"When I look at a wildlife or nature subject, I don't see the feathers in the wings, I just count the wings. I see exciting shapes, color combinations, patterns, textures, fascinating behavior and endless possibilities for making interesting pictures. I regard the picture as an ecosystem in which all the elements are interrelated, interdependent, perfectly balanced, without trimming or unutilized parts; and herein lies the lure of the painting; in a world of chaos, the picture is one small rectangle in which the artist can create an ordered universe."
Birch Fabrics prints on 100% organic fabric, treated with LOVE, not pesticides
Birch Organic Fabrics was created in an effort to provide an environmentally friendly cotton alternative to the quilting and crafting community. We at Birch Fabrics believe that the sustainability of our planet begins with consciousness, and can be successful with real action. That’s why our fabric is produced from 100% organic cotton and printed with low impact dye. Birch Fabrics is devoted to the highest quality of organic cotton fabrics in the marketplace, with a strong yet whimsical design perspective.
To be considered 100% organic, our cotton has to meet a very strict approval process. The certifier, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), has approved every step in the process from cotton to the finished goods. The process begins from the time the cotton is grown, to how the cotton is transported to the mill, how it is milled, how it is bleached using oxygen based bleach (non chlorine), how the cotton is printed using *Low Impact Dyes, and must also meet a standard of fair working conditions set by the International Labor Organization (ILO). At the end of the process a certificate is provided to ensure that all of these standards have been met and approved.
*Low impact dyes do not contain toxic chemicals or mordants, require less rinsing and have a high absorption rate. High absorption rates and a decreased use of rinse water create less wastewater and runoff.
Care Instructions: Machine Wash Cold with like colors, gentle cycle, only non-chlorine bleach when needed, tumble dry low, remove promptly, warm iron if needed. Not intended or promoted for use in children's sleepwear and robes size 14 and under.
