Searching for the right canvas took several years to source. We needed a densely woven, smooth surface and mid-weight canvas to be able to print and stitch within our workshop. Our canvas is an "army duck", it has a fair amount of body and stiffness, is durable and has a natural, unbleached color, which is slightly off white.

Scented by nature, subtle, refreshing and sometimes sweet, you'll find our sachets filled with natural herbs and botanical ingredients.

Occasionally we create a special scent using fragrance oils when it can't be captured in nature and is too good to ignore, like our grape scented owl!

The nice thing about our handprinted fabric is that it can be used on a variety of products for the home. Our pillows and prints are inspired by nature, fabrics are elemental and comforting. Our herb sachets have natural fragrances and household items, such as our clothes pin holders and log carriers, make simple tasks more fun and colorful. 

Functional home decor, handprinted to bring fun and color into your world, makes everyday tasks more enjoyable. We've created a selection of items that are useful and reflect an easygoing, laid back style.

There's no better 100% cotton tee than Comfort Colors on the market. Printed on heavy, 6.1 oz cotton, these crew neck tees are long lasting and quickly become everyone's favorite. 

Comfort Colors has not changed the cut or weight of the men's tees, but they're now marketing them as "unisex" as they have cut the women's tees from their lineup. The men's tees are heavier weight than the women's and have a longer sleeve and body.

Joseph R. Beckham was born in Rhode Island and has spent most of his life on, in or near the sea. Joe works with his wife, Ashley, helping run Willywaw, while pursuing his love of photography as Light Forge Studio.

As an avid diver, Joe began shooting underwater photography at a young age. His recent photographs chronicle nature and outdoor life, and he prefers to shoot in natural light. Joe is frequently seen cruising the salt marshes of Narrow River in his boat, SQUID, or capturing photos of surfers along the sea wall.

Joe worked in the marine industry as a boat builder and marine engineer for nearly 30 years and continues to consult on new construction projects. Currently, he is working on support boats for the offshore wind farms. He's crewed on numerous ocean racing sailboats, participating in many races including the Trans-Atlantic, the Fastnet, as well as the Bermuda race. 

In search of unique frames to compliment his work, Joe began making his own out of salvaged, reclaimed lumber and driftwood. He has a loyal following of customers who come to him for the unique colors, hand-rubbed and distressed finishes he creates.

His work can be viewed at lightforgestudio.com or follow him on Instagram.

The feeling of our handprinted pillows is uncomplicated and welcoming. Fabrics are chosen for their texture and qualities of softness and durability. Natural fibers wear well, feel good and are wonderful to print on with our water-based inks. Whether a piled on a window seat or a single statement on a chair, we all have our favorites and our dogs do too!

Printed on the same canvas as our tote bags, our zippered pouches come in a variety of shapes and sizes. We love to use them to organize all our stuff, from power cords to pencils, money, and toiletries.

Check out our t-shirts! Fresh, original designs printed on the best tees we can find.

Table linens from hemp, cotton and linen are long wearing and I'm smitten with our natural fibers for their rich textures and soft hand. All of my fabrics are pre-washed and shrunk in hot water before they are hand printed. I make a variety of napkins, place mats, table runners and table cloths with my screen prints and am happy to work on custom orders for the size of your table.

One of our most popular items, our tea towels are handprinted on 100% cotton with water-based inks. The tea towels are pre-washed and shrunk before printing, making them soft and absorbent.

Our collection of totes have expanded to include sailor ditties, flat bags, and market totes as well as our original handprinted tote bags. There's a size for nearly everything you might carry.

Our current collection of hand printed women's t-shirts are printed on Bella and Next Level brands.

Comfort Colors is no longer printing a women's cut t-shirt and have changed their men's t-shirt to "unisex". It's still the same cut as the men's, which have a wider/traditional crew neck with longer sleeves and body length.

Ashley draws inspiration from her lifelong fascination with living things and the natural world around her. She graduated with distinction with a BA in Studio Art from Kenyon College in 1984. She worked as a freelance illustrator for many years and continues to define her own work through several mediums. Equally adept at oil painting, serigraph prints and watercolor, her versatility can also be seen in her compositions and styles.
