showcase – Luli Sanchez


With a fondness for floral prints, specifically watercolours, it wasn’t surprising that the designs of Luli Sánchez caught my eye. There is something compelling about the way this Cuban-born artist and textile designer paints a print, the immediacy and simplicity of her designs is inspiring. Her work reflects her design ethos and captures the essence of a shape with striking colours. With an incredible portfolio of work, these are several pieces that I’d love to share with you…


Lourdes – or Luli, as she is known – says, “My objective with my designing, has been to capture an organic and moody yet optimistic spirit and have designs out in the world that in their own small way may invoke a feeling that underneath it all, it is a benevolent universe.”
