There's something so captivating about thistles with their long spiky stems and massive pinky-purple blooms. I remember leaning in to touch the wildflower for the first time as a little girl- my bike tossed to the side of the road- and being so surprised by the softness of the petals. They're incredibly soft - softer than a dandelion- but it's hard to get to them without getting pricked. I remember trying to pop the top bloom off with my bare hands and dealing with the thorns in my fingers just so I could get the bloom & take it home. I think it's that juxtaposition that's so intriguing about thistles; their beauty is both soft & hard, like roses & their thorns, but a bit wilder & more dangerous.

Inspired by natural elements and the wildflowers & weeds Lauren has loved since childhood, each hand-drawn textile tells a story. Because of the nature of our eco-friendly printing process (which uses water vs. harsh chemicals) slight variations will occur. The textiles have been designed with this in mind and many of them have a slightly mottled quality to give the appearance of age & patina. We believe that this is what makes them unique & beautiful.
Printed in the U.S.A. on Belgian linen.
Not suitable for heavy use upholstery
Washing fabric will change its appearance due to the nature of natural linen. (Fibers loosen, and it takes on a patina & fades slightly, which we love.) Most of the fabrics pictured on this website have been washed. If you order a memo, it will not come washed.
Wash only in cold water on “gentle" with a gentle cleanser and dry on low or no heat so as to not break the linen's fibers. The designs that change the most when washed are those with colored backgrounds.
