One of the biggest questions surrounding is: it is eco-friendly? While the standard technique might not be, there are options which make screen printing incredibly good for the environment. Find out moreWhen it comes to screen printing ink, there are two different types of inks that can be used: plastisol ink and water-based ink. Plastisol is the industry standard and the default ink used by commercial printers. It uses a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base, as opposed to water-based ink, which is exactly what its name suggests, a water-based ink with pigments suspended within it. The limitation associated with water-based inks is that you can not print onto dark coloured garments, but they are excellent for printing vibrant colours onto lighter coloured garments.Furthermore, the print result is affected by the colour of the garment. For example, using a purple coloured shirt may change the appearance of the ink colour. Water-based inks also do not work well on all materials and are better suited for shorter run orders. For printing soft prints onto dark coloured garments there is a screen printing technique that uses discharge water-based inks.

A fashion designer based in Liverpool has created a new range of designer turbans which is specifically aimed at female cancer suffers in a bid to help give them their confidence back after cancer treatment.

Enola Wade, from Enola Rose Designs, is known her her fashionable range of headscarves and oversized bow designs but she received a number of requests from customers who wanted to cover their heads in style after losing their hair during cancer treatment. Enola said:

“I couldn’t believe how many women had started asking me whether I did full turbans for hair loss. They were either having cancer treatment, had alopecia or they’d had operations where they needed to cover part of their head.”

She went on to say that her love for fashionable headwear prompted her to create the stylish designs as a way of giving something back to the community and give people their confidence back during their recovery period.

“I want them to be looking good and glamorous and feeling confident while they’re going through what they’re going through.”

Enola creates her collections under the fashion label Enola Rose Designs and has been selling trademark vintage-inspired headwear in Quiggins, Liverpool. She is a graduate in millinery from Liverpool Community College and starter her own business after her daughter was born. Originally starting as an online store, Enola Rose Designs opened their first store this summer so she could reach the growing customer base she was receiving.

Although a creative designer, Enola also tailors designs to suit customers needs.

“I’ve got one customer at the moment who’s losing her hair and she doesn’t want anything in-your-face so I’m making her something in plain black and really subtle.”
