Here are new fabrics with an aquatic theme. These fabrics are designed by Luli Sanchez for Timeless Treasures.
Here is a little info about Luli Sanchez that can be found on her website "Originally trained as a watercolorist, Cuban born Lourdes Sánchez is a New York based textile designer. Before striking out on her own, she worked for over a decade in the fashion industry, including several years at Emanuel/Emanuel Ungaro, as well as stints designing for private label and swimwear, where her hand-painted designs sold at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdales. Her prints were also widely sold throughout the U.S. and Europe to such diverse clients as Calvin Klein, The Gap, Kangol Hats, Ralph Lauren, Armani Exchange, Target, Anne Klein, and many more.
Seeking a change from Seventh Avenue, in 2004 she set up her own studio in the East Village overlooking Tompkins Square Park where she now counts among her influences the neighborhood's community gardens, fireworks over the East river, trips to the rural Carribean, and the ateliers of painter friends."
The fabrics are now online at volksfaden.
