Whenever time permits I scout for new looks, patterns, motifs.
As for my printing practice - I cannot print on jute or even untreated linen or artist canvas. My machine's printheads are set at a close distance from the surface they print on for a precision and high resolution.
Rough stretchy fabric would definitely damage my printer.
I must use textiles specially enginered for my technology. Essentially I would need to capture the background as the part of the graphic (by scanning or photographic) and print the whole graphic on a white even textile.
Which - under the inspiration - I may actually do!
