After spending a decade working in interior design publishing, Lauren began her new enterprise working exclusively with bespoke textiles in 2009. The process of discovering and promoting hand made textiles led her to start her own namesake collection in 2013. Inspired by vintage textiles, curious & devoted to hand made, she sought out artisan work shops to collaborate weaving a small boutique collection of hand woven textiles. The first collection was boho in vibe inspired by nature with artisan weavers from India. Since then, LAUREN HWANG NEW YORK has three distinct collections: handwoven textiles from India, handwoven alpaca collection from Peru and jacquard woven upholstery collection from the UK.
Lauren’s process always starts with studying yarn qualities. Woven structures are simple & uncomplicated, textures & highlights come through by mixing different qualities of yarns and colors.
Her goal is to offer something that contrast what is readily available in the commercial market. Something hand made, that show’s the maker’s touch…
Ultimately resulting in…..
Inspired by nature and global cultures, driven by love of fiber and craft, with a nod to the past, LAUREN HWANG NEW YORK collection evokes poetry and artistry in the finest interior textiles to the trade.
