Capturing the delicate and unique characteristics of orchid leaves, Laelia is an abstract textile pattern with varying shapes. Painted first as a watercolor in our Chicago Studio, Founder and Artistic Director Iris Wang pulled inspiration from her love of orchids to create this versatile design. Beginning from a very conceptual state, Iris developed the pattern layer by layer through trial and error. The original watercolor painting featured a realistic representation of the orchid, with the image becoming more deconstructed as time passed. The smaller scale of its sister fabric Beallara, Laelia comes in 8 original colorways, including Atlas Moth and Summer Nights. Laelia is an attractive fabric ideal for senior living and residential interiors with a resilient abrasion of 100,000 Double Rubs (Wyzenbeek, Cotton Duck), and PFAS-Free Stain Repellent joining Brentano’s esteemed list of performance textiles.
