tablet + HAAR
HAND CRAFTED COLLECTION
tablet+ HAAR is the textile studio run by designer Katie Ebben Smith from the seaside village of Crail on the east coast of Scotland. Katie uses hand screen printing techniques and environmentally friendly inks to create her products and is inspired by the landscape of the beautiful East Neuk. Katie named her studio after two of her great loves: the haar (sea fog) which rolls inland creating an enveloping, oh-so-quiet and mysterious atmosphere that she finds inspiring, and tablet, an ultra sweet and crumbly Scottish kind of fudge, which hurts her teeth but just one square inch keeps her happily pulling screens for hours.
tablet + HAAR started at the kitchen table driven by a passion for print, colour and pattern. Materials and process are important to Katie and each item she makes is unique. The very nature of screen printing by hand means no two products are exactly the same, with slight variations in the print giving each its own authentic handmade personality.
