ABOUT THE FOUNDER & DESIGNER
Julanna is not just a designer/artist and entrepreneur - she is growing a business where family comes first, necessary in a household with three dynamic children interested in everything sports, and everything Arts!
She has an organic style and a passion for creating beautiful things. Whether by accident or on purpose - She loves experimenting with materials, cause and effect, and becomes absorbed with the way colours blend, how patterns form, and the way paint can expose texture. Her work is a true labour of love.
Hand-dyed // Linens are hand-dyed using Shibori techniques. This involves folding and/or binding fabric in different forms to create a resist to control the flow of dye. Sometimes a dye solution is added to the fabric, and other times, an ice-dye technique is used by applying direct powdered pigment to ice which is layered over the fabric.
Hand-Painted // Painting has always been therapeutic for Julanna, and for her it is an expression of emotion, and playful forms. She uses a variety of materials - and photographs her work. These images create digitally printed textiles. She has printed on velvet, silk and linen.
Her home studio - and the craftswomen she works with - are located in Toronto, Canada.
