Lake August creates textiles and wallpapers that transform a space and spark the imagination. Each design is hand-drawn and traditionally printed, resulting in a collection with modern appeal that is rooted in the legacy of true craftsmanship.
The natural world, primarily the landscape of her native California, is what captures the imagination of designer Alexis Hartman. Patterns are translated from her paintings and hand-carved blocks into silkscreens and then printed onto linen and clay-coated paper.
Lake August is dedicated to the continuous exploration of natural materials and traditional techniques. Our linen comes from a five-generation family-owned Belgian manufacturer that upholds a tradition of farm stewardship, natural cultivation and sustainable production. Our wallpapers are printed using waterbased inks, on paper from a mill that uses renewable energy and responsibly-sourced fibers. We believe in the beauty of well-made things, and these details are what make our products well-made in the truest sense of the term.
A portion of each sale supports The Center for Biological Diversity, a non-profit which works to protect the lands, waters and climate that species need to survive.
