ISA LAVILLA brand is designed by Isabel Lavilla. Isabel was born in North of Spain, in Zaragoza. From an early childhood she was inspired by trips abroad to Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Fiji and the Caribbean. During these travels she became intrigued on how fabric patterns were made and created from nature, which led her to study fashion design in Barcelona. However, her curiosity and determination pushed her to venture into uncharted territory.
In Bali, Isa was introduced to the tie dyed technique, which is some of the oldest and most basic of the textile arts. Creating patterns on cloth by tie dying is a type of resists dyeing in which you can create a variety of dye effects and textures in the fabric. Color variations should occur due to the hand dyeing and it is part of the natural evolving process so each piece you create is always a bit of a surprise and completely one-of-a-kind look. Inspired by the wide range of possibilities of working with color, pattern and texture, her aim is to keep traditional techniques alive but with a modern silhouette.
Isabel´s work is inspired by a love for the authentic skills as well as an interest in world cultures. She combines both apparel design and textile design to create unique special works that will be treasured for a lifetime. We put stories back into One-Of-A-Kind pieces. She is passionate about creating stories and would love to share her story / journey with you.
