About Dela Studios – Textile Art

dela studios textile art was created out of a passion for textiles & the desire to be creative with my hands.  I enjoy working with a variety of fabrics & techniques, often times combining quilting & upholstery to create a unique style.  My mission is to use the gifts I’ve been blessed with to inspire & encourage others in their own endeavors.

My textile art encompasses an artful array of one-of-a-kind & limited production pieces.  The limited production pieces are unique in that no two pieces are identical.  Several pieces may be created from one design; however, the color palette as well as the types of fabrics & techniques used will vary from piece to piece creating a unique work of art.

The fabric I use comes from a couple of sources, one of them being dela studios upholstery.  When furniture is reupholstered there can be some large remnants of new fabric left over.  Many of the pieces that come into the studio, be it a chair or sofa, have large pieces of fabric that can be salvaged, usually coming from the outside back & arms.  It is carefully removed & laundered.  So instead of becoming part of a landfill it is used to create my textile art.  In addition to salvaged upholstery fabrics & remnants, another source is from my personal stash of cotton fabrics that has accumulated over the years.  Any fabric can find its way into my textile art if it can hold up to being laundered & survive a good steam pressing.

I am honored that you stopped by and hope you enjoy your visit.

Joyful Blessings,
Karen de la Durantaye
