Dallas-based Ever Atelier is an art, wallcovering and textile studio founded by dynamic duo Sarah English and Ashley Leftwich—who aptly describe themselves as “a lean, mean two-woman team.” Read on for more about these fierce Texas creatives and their artful designs.
Tell us about your backgrounds. AL: Textiles and interior design. I’ve been on the design scene for 20 years working for showrooms, interior architects, textile manufacturers and on my own projects. My passions revolve around textiles and tactile art. SE: Fine arts and academics. I worked for 10 years in corporate fashion retail. My textile design career was immersed in color and print. I eventually ventured entrepreneurially in my own direction as a surface designer.
And your offerings? SE: Bespoke artisanal wallcoverings in our standard collections, with grounds for both residential and commercial applications. Since we do everything in-house, we also offer completely custom projects—from bespoke colorations on our standard designs to completely new patterns. This week we were drawing camels and basil leaves on our metallic-gold ground!
What’s new? SE: Fabrics! We recently found our textile mill in South Carolina. The textile ground is a 7.5-ounce Belgian linen that drapes like heaven. Seeing our designs translated onto fabric is exciting and fulling.
