Handmade in Philadelphia: Chanee Vijay Textiles

Aya pillow cover

Aya pillow cover. Hand printed, metallic ink, organic hemp.

Great talent is always a click away on etsy ever since community features were added to let us all share our favorites and treasures. So here in our feed today is this great work from Chanee Vijay’s etsy shop, Chanee Vijay Textiles. Her work is stunning, well edited, classic, modern but not so chic as to be untouchable. We want these pillows for art and cuddles.  Not to be missed are her other textile work (napkins, table runners, and the like) available also in select dazzling brick-and-mortars.

From Chanee’s website:

“Specializing in surface pattern design, she developed her signature style of painting her designs on screens and hand printing them with water-based metallic inks on sustainably grown fabrics with rich natural textures. Her pillow covers are removable and washable, and made in small batches. Chanee subscribes to a slow design philosophy, so each hand-pulled screenprint and blockprint is created with regard for our health, the environment and longevity.”

Wallpaper Revival from Mini Moderns UK

Darjeeling Wallpaper - Welsh Slate

Darjeeling Wallpaper | mini moderns

There’s a wallpaper revival going on. We all know that when you try to sell your house one day, your realtor will winge and wail, but, whatever! Enjoy the pop of fun in your home a striking pattern can make.  And if you’re feeling a bit skiddish about the commitment (and if you’re renting, you should feel more than skiddish) you can find other ways to incorporate patterns into your walls like lining the inside of a focal bookshelf, armoire, entertainment center, etc.  Sidepoint: this would be crazy easy BEFORE you put an otherwise boring big-box unit together.
