Premier textile printer, Auckland Fabric Printers (AFP), has appointed Petra Taylor as its new sales representative. An experienced textile engineer, Taylor was a senior staff member at Inter-Weave before taking time off to raise a family. Taylor is very familiar with the technical aspects of textiles and with all aspects of Auckland Fabric Printers’ operation. Now working for AFP she is able to give plenty of technical support and advice to customers including Sophia Moon, a designer for Thunderpants. The cool little company that can be described as ‘a stroke of genius’ produces New Zealand made clothing from one hundred per cent organic cotton. Taylor and the Thunderpants team are currently planning new innovative prints to create more organic Thunderpants magic. Having worked closely with textile designers in the past, Taylor loves creative aesthetic designs.
