ONE OF A KIND TEXTILES

Hand Printed in Red Hook, Brooklyn

Our mission is to bring high-quality hand-printed textiles to everyone! Own a piece of design history. Some of our fabrics are created from the vintage collection of silkscreens residing at the EFS Designs print house. Curated by Maruja and recolored to bring them back to life in 2019. All fabrics are also available for customization and wholesale. All fabric grounds have been selected from the quality providers of Belgian linen.

OUR PROCESs

MARUJA IS MUCH MORE THAN A FABRIC COLLECTION

Hello, my name is Maria Suarez, and I am a second-generation artisan with an old-school print shop in Red Hook, Brooklyn. You can find my Maruja NYC collection of textiles and home goods right here at my virtual showroom! 

I began textile designing for my father's print shop, EFS Designs Inc since 2004, assisting in the creation of many of the luxury collections in the industry today. I learned textile design from watching my father hand reproduce textiles into multiple layers of acetate that would become the silkscreens used for hand printing textiles. After college, I fell in love with hand color mixing and mastering of the tedious process of trial and error, and so it became a passion that drives every day of my life.  Every color of you will find in my collection was hand mixed and created harmony in every yard of printed fabric.

 

However, Maruja is much more than fabric collection; she is the embodiment of a movement towards adding value to our mindless consumerism. I hope to inspire others to dream big, create, and discover who they are, who they want to be.
