Remodelista New England Market Spotlight: Coral & Tusk

November 03, 2015 12:00 PM

Building on decades of experience in the textile industry, Stephanie Housley, designer and owner of Coral & Tusk, has embarked on a new concept: fabric by the yard, available not just to the trade but also to the general public.

In addition its signature embroidered designs, which feature narrative characters and natural motifs, Coral & Tusk’s new yardage also features the non-narrative, Wayfarer collection. Characterized by bold striped, lattice and geometric patterns, this line is inspired by the native landscapes, traditions, and crafts that Housley encounters on her travels.

To see the collection up close and personal, stop by Remodelista’s first New England Market at Lekker the weekend of November 14-15.
