New Fabrics by Lisa Fine


Lisa Fine Textiles

Born in Mississippi and raised in Texas, the New York- and Paris-based Lisa Fine often looks to India for inspiration for her hand-printed linens. Her latest creation, available in coral rose and blue, depicts Mughal flowers, a leitmotif commonly seen in block print and embroidery throughout much of South Asia—but it’s no standard interpretation. “The Mughal theme is so familiar that I wanted to do something less literal,” says Fine. “I consider it more an abstraction of the idea.” Fine paints her version of the design on the fabric using watercolor, then distresses it to produce her signature timeworn, almost vintage effect. “That’s the greatest compliment,” she says, “when someone can appreciate the beauty of something new made to look not so new.” From $95 a yard; lisafinetextiles.com.
