Our Team

Louise Wannier

FOUNDER and CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Artist and designer, Louise Wannier, born and raised in England until she was 8 years old, when the family moved their family to Southern California. The tradition of working with textiles goes back to her grandfather (and namesake), Louis Arion, who was a textile wholesaler in England. Through her many entrepreneurial endeavors, Louise has maintained the goal of innovating solutions that make our day to day lives less complicated and more enjoyable, so that we may feel more alive. 

Inspired by her daily immersion into nature, Louise photographs the dynamic energy of the natural world around her. From these photographs she discovers the patterns within them and transforms them into unique fine art surface design prints. For Louise, her designs are a spiritual practice reflecting the energy she experiences in our world.
