Extraordinary embroidery and surface design by Lorena Marañon
After a dash of inspiration? Take a look at the gloriously vibrant work of embroidery, patchwork and surface designer Lorena Marañon. A veritable celebration of colour, texture and pattern, the Cuban-born designer creates quilts, textile art and jewellery from her Los Angeles home studio.
Lorena’s career took off back in 2009 with a small online shop of her hand-embroidered goods. Since then, her business has flourished and expanded to the point where she now offers one-of-a-kind collections for retailers around the world, as well as partnerships with companies such as fab.com.
Most recently, Lorena added quilting to her line of textiles, and she participates in modern textile art exhibitions.
Her “creative process”, Lorena says, is “dictated by a tactile obsession to glamorize and transmute tiny ideas, matter and philosophies, and to pierce through with colorful lightness on hand crafted needlework, sewing, and quilting.”
