The ideas and inspiration behind E Alexander Designs
began long ago. When Emily Alexander received her degree in Textiles and Communications, she was following a long line of family members who appreciated and were involved in the artistry of textile design a great-grandmother in north Louisiana who was a milliner after the Civil War; an aunt and a cousin who made fine dolls and stitched clothes for them out of fur and velvet; and a mother whose beautiful and intricate quilts were bought and appreciated by many, including the First Lady of Louisiana, who displayed them in the Governors Mansion. Emily grew up learning needlepoint, petit point and crewel. Later in life, her love of fine textiles and beautiful old things led her on a search for antique pillows for her own home. Trips to Europe ignited her interest in antique fabrics, and the idea was born that she would create her own pillows.
From her home base in Rancho Santa Fe, California, Emily now travels to France, England and Italy, scouring auctions, flea markets and antique shows in search of beautiful old (16th, 17th and 18th century) textile pieces Aubussons, tapestries, needlepoint and toile. With each piece, she personally creates a one-of-a-kind pillow, filled with the highest quality down, backed with premium silks, velvets and linens, detailed with antique trims.
E Alexander Designs are also found at fine antique stores such as Crown and Colony Antiques. We will hold our first Trunk Show with Emily on March 21, 2018. We are very excited to have this lovely and talented person in our midst and to showcase her exquisite pillows.
