Hibiscus Linens

Named 2018 Best Southern Tastemaker by Southern Living and Winner of the 8th Annual Made in the South Awards, Needlework Designer Mariana Barran Goodall’s work combines a modern aesthetic with traditional textile and needlework techniques. 

The artist, a Mexican designer, is passionate about preserving old world stitching methods. This allows her to work through heritage textiles to reveal new insights in a very simple manner. She believes in the warmth and universal language that comes from a piece of art made completely by hand.
