A dance of colour

  • • Natalia's blank canvas is white silk
  • • Artist Paul Gauguin is an inspiration
  • • She loves colour and the movement it creates on silk

As a textile design student at Central St Martins in London in the early 90s, Natalia Lumbreras wanted to use very specific prints for her graduation collection. That's when she decided to design and make her own, thus finding her vocation and marking the beginning of her love story with hand painting textiles. Back in Spain she continued to experiment with colour and pattern, hand painting mostly silk, the fabric that even today she is most drawn to. She opened her first workshop in 1992, applying her craft to fashion and interior items. Besides hand painting, she also designs one-of-a-kind motifs for limited edition fabrics. After almost 30 years, she remains passionate and never ceases sketching, studying and painting.
