Rachel Craven / White Linen Cocoon
Rachel Craven is a textile artist, designer and creative consultant who lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. The daughter of two painters, she grew up in the arts focused neighborhood of Tribeca and later attended the School of Visual Arts. After school, a stint as a fashion stylist took her to Los Angeles where she transitioned back to painting and design. A passion for fabric and geometric design led to her current line of textiles and a rapidly growing clothing line. The vibrant and elegant collection can be found at Clic, Tenoversix, and General Store. Rachel has been featured in Domino, C Magazine, Apartment Therapy, T Magazine and Martha Stewart's Living.
All Rachel Craven garments are sourced, sewn, and dyed in downtown Los Angeles. They use deadstock Italian linen, silks, and gauzes - meaning the leftover fabrics from other fashion houses that would otherwise end up in landfills. This means every season the materials they use will be slightly different.
Linen: Hand wash or machine wash gentle cycle in warm water. Hang to dry - avoid hanging in direct sunlight as that may cause fading. Press lightly with warm iron, or steam.
Silk: Dry clean only.
Gauze: Hand wash and hang to dry.
