HANDCRAFTED IN CALIFORNIA
Chanee Vijay designs textiles from her home studio in a small beach town in California where she lives with her husband and their three dogs. After taking a year off to move cross-country and remodel yet another home, her new 2016 textiles collection came to life gradually and is a departure from her earlier screen printed work. Each new piece is still hand printed, but with her new hand-dyed technique, each pillow cover and bed cover is nearly one of a kind.
In 2014, Chanee partnered with her mother to create the Plains collection. It is at its essence, plain - made from modest yet beautiful organic European hemp. Inspired by her mother's humble Midwest origins, Chanee designed a functional, durable and refined collection of aprons, napkins and hand towels for the natural modern home.
The designs from Chanee's 2012 pillow collection were influenced by her travels across southern India (where she was married in 2007). The 2013 Collection reflects her love for the geometric and historic patterns in her former city of Philadelphia. Terrain carried her Holiday 2013 table linen collection, and her pillow designs were offered at Schoolhouse Electric - a design collaboration for their Spring 2014 collection.
Chanee's designs have been seen in national and international publications and blogs like Better Homes and Gardens, Sunset Magazine, Lonny Magazine, Sweet Paul Magazine, DIY Magazine, Style at Home, NY Times, Design*Sponge, Design Milk, Apartment Therapy, and Fete Press, and on the Nate Berkus show. Her textiles have been featured at West Elm in Charlotte and Philadelphia, Schoolhouse Electric Co., Terrain, and the Philadelphia Art Alliance.
