Ellisha Alexina

Experimentation is at the heart of every fabric Ellisha Alexina brings to life — and boy, has it paid off. Created through a unique combination of silk-screen printing and handpainting, the native New Englander’s delicate designs feel at once fresh and familiar, inviting attention with soft colorways and artful motifs. One favorite? Alexina’s “Dotted Stripe” fabric, an abstract interpretation of pebbles by the sea.
