LES INDIENNES FABRICS: EUROPEAN SOPHISTICATION BY WAY OF INDIA

by Marisa Marcantonio



Mary Mulcahey started Les Indiennes in 2002. After discovering that a tiny village in India could print her fabrics with the special 12 step Kalamkari printing process, she knew her fabric designs were going to be realized. Her collection of French prints, charming florals and damasks are all made in India, hand-blocked and printed with natural dyes. Her take on Indian textiles is well suited to the American and European market. The range of soft colors in fabrics, bedding, throw pillows and accessories is sophisticated and casual. Hot off the press, limited-addition wallpapers have just been added as the newest introductions in her line. A former stylist, Mulcahey took beautiful photographs that showcase her designs in a wonderful way. Visit her online store and see her full range at Les Indiennes.
