A love of land, sea and sky is reflected in the work of Lake August. Whether observing a tangle of agave and nasturtium plants in her native California or admiring the grace of geese over water in Scotland, designer Alexis Hartman finds endless inspiration in the natural world. Designs range from illustrative to abstract, but the mark of the artist is always apparent.
Their creative process always starts with a pencil or paintbrush. Drawings, paintings or hand-carved blocks are translated into patterns which are then printed by hand onto linen or wallpaper.
Lake August’s production process involves a search for like-minded, environmentally conscious artisans and producers of fabrics and papers around the world. With each pattern, product or collection they eagerly explore natural materials and traditional techniques. It is these standards that make their fabrics and wallpapers well-made in the truest sense of the term.
All of Lake August’s fabrics and wallpapers are printed in the USA, using non toxic water-based inks. They welcome all manner of custom inquiries and can print on a variety of commercial and residential grounds.
