Cotton & Flax

Erin Dollar is the owner, maker, and designer behind Cotton & Flax. Since 2010, she has been creating limited edition textile goods, as well as fine art prints on paper, from her home studio in Los Angeles, California. 
Each step of the creation of Cotton & Flax textiles is completed by Erin, beginning with the pattern design and the selection of heirloom quality fabrics. Erin draws each pattern by hand using brush and ink, and the drawing is later transferred to a silkscreen to create multiples on textiles. When it comes time to do the printing, Erin scours local sources to find beautiful linen and linen blend fabrics to hand print with her designs. She then carefully hand prints each piece of fabric with her original designs, which she later sews into pillows, teatowels, napkins, or coasters.

Shadow Play

We love these remarkable chandelier's from Hilden & Diaz. The chandelier projects a 360° shadow of trees and roots onto the walls surrounding it. This piece is titled 'Forms of Nature'. A little spooky? Or a lot cool!?

We Are Here!

We have officially moved and are now busy unpacking in our new studio space!
Come and see us at:

Level 1
Change House
150 Featherston Street
Wellington
(Cnr of Featherston & Brandon)




As we have mentioned previously, we no longer have the retail showroom (an online store is coming later this year) but we have a great new studio space with all of our fabric sampling, as well as our in house sewing room so we can continue to bring you all of your custom made cushions, squabs, lampshades and other goodies!

If you would like to pop by for advice, fabrics or more please wing us a quick email or drop us a line to make an appointment so we can ensure someone is here to help you - though we won't be upset if you extra special folk (you know who you are) are in the area and want to pop by to say hello on the off-chance we're in!

We appreciate all of your wonderful support over the last 10 years, and we look forward to continuing to provide our interior design services for years to come!

Hari & Deepti Illuminated Cut Paper Light Boxes

Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker known collectively as Hari & Deepti) are an artist couple who create paper cut light boxes. Each diorama is made from layers of cut watercolor paper placed inside a shadow box and is lit from behind with flexible LED light strips. The small visual narratives depicted in each work often play off aspects of light including stars, flames, fireflies, and planets. Amazing!

Bringing the Outside In

You all know we are in the process of moving into and decorating our new premises... well this might be taking it too far but imagine turning up to work one morning to find a hallway filled with flowers, or your office chair surrounded by tulips!

This was an installation called 'Bloom': 28,000 Potted Flowers installed at the Massachuesetts Mental Health Centre in 2012.
