Hello, my name is Kathy Brookes. I am Sales Director and work alongside my brother and fellow Director Lawrence Chapman in Countryside Art.
Let me tell you about the company in which Lawrence and I, plus the rest of our Countryside Art team, share a great passion.
Present Day Countryside Art….
Over the 40 or more years the company has been trading we have become the acknowledged experts in the field of quality and complex direct screen printing on to tea towels, bags, cushions, aprons and kitchen textiles. We work from a state-of-the-art modern purpose-built factory equipped with the latest technology in a small rural market town in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Our company is unique in that everything is created in-house from design through print to final manufacture allowing our customers a degree of bespoke input not available elsewhere. Our very talented and experienced design team (including two of the best textile colour separators in the UK) offer a huge amount of input during the actual artwork stages of all our products. In addition, guidance from our very helpful Design Co-ordinator and Sales team allows the addition of lots of bespoke manufacturing features plus the ability to have products individually designed to your own specifications.
We were the leaders in our market in being the first to move to digital textile printing using pigment inks; installing the very first digital machine of its kind in the UK over three years ago. We have also recently fully upgraded our digital print department this year with three new printing machines and can offer small to large runs of superb quality full-colour digital printing on to tea towels and all of our textile products.
Our cotton is woven and finished to our specific requirements allowing us to maintain superb levels of quality plus ensuring our supply chain is both ethical and sustainable. Our large sewing unit is also fully equipped with all the latest technology including digital laser cutting. Then to further enhance your products we offer a wide range of attractive personalised packaging options which are designed and printed in-house.
We offer low minimum orders plus all our products pass through a rigorous quality control system ensuring you will be 100% satisfied with the quality of the work you receive. Our work is very popular and we have a great many loyal repeat customers so our lead times are sometimes longer than other companies. But the feedback we constantly receive is that our products are worth waiting for and the quality second to none.
In order to offer a complete range of giftware options to our customers, we also produce a large range of mugs, melamine, paper products and garments (the mugs and melamine once designed are sent out for final manufacture to other UK companies working on our behalf). All these extra products can be designed to compliment and co-ordinate with our tea towels and textile giftware.
We look forward to hopefully working with you in the future.
